DVS - ERSPAN - Egress Direction on Trunk not working

Hi Guys,

Running: VMware ESXi, 7.0.1, 17119627

I have setup ERSPAN on the DVS, works basically. However, I get ingress/egress traffic only for non-trunk ports (access in a particular VLAN). If I have ERSPAN ingress/egress enabled on a trunk port (VLAN 0-4095), I only receive ingress traffic (traffic coming form the VM to the DVS).

Is this a known limitation? A bug? Can I somehow get the egress direction spanned to IPv4 destination?

Thanks + Best regards,
