conigure load balancing

Jump to solution

Hi

I have configured network load balancing with 2 interfaces in vSphere Client.

On managed HP ProCurve switch I have configured the following:

HP_Core(config)# trunk A21,A22 Trk1

for these interfaces connected to ESXi 5.5.

Are these settings correct?

Try "trunk A21,A22 trk1 Trunk" and then make sure your VLANs are configured as tagged / unstaffed on trk1 as appropriate. Tagged if you are sending more than one.

i Think you can check with show trunk.

Thx, but is it possible to configure static port channel on 3 physical interfaces from ESXi Server?

Yes, you can have 3 or more physical NICs in a channel.
