    Failover with VM Network not working

    JasonVmware Hot Shot

       

      Hello All,

       

       

       

      I currently have a setup like the following:

       

       

      vswitch0

      Service Console  - vmnic0  -  set to failover for Vmkernel

      Vmkernel - vmnic2 - set to failover for Service Console

       

       

      vswitch1

      Vmnetwork - vmnic1, vmnic3 - Route by oringinating Port ID

       

       

       

      Now when I pull the network connection out of vmnic1 to test the failover for the VM's it doesn't failover ? shouldn't vmnic3 failover for vmnic1 if it fails untill vmnic1 comes back online? I tested it the other way by pulling the cable on vmnic3 as well same result.  All the vm's on the ESX server are assigned to a specific nic as it should with oringinating port ID however I was under the impression that the nics would failover for each other in the event of a failover ?
