RHEL 4 x64 VMs = 30 Second Network Loss On VMotion

No matter what style NIC I choose for these Linux machines, I am seeing a ping drop of 30 seconds on every VMotion. I am going to assume this is not normal for Linux. I have tried a windows guest on these same ESX servers and it migrates just fine. Has anyone else run into this?

do you have more info on your VI3 env ?

I have VC2.5u3 with ESX 3.0.3 fully patched

We run RHEL5 x32 and don't have any loss, maybe 1 ping...

I am not at work, but monday i can check which config we use for the virtual hardware...
