Please elaborate on "then move the NIC's over to the LAG's utilizing the same CNA cards."
share CNA model, ESXi version ..
CNA cards are HP CN1100R on vSphere 6.5U1.
Try the following:
- Confirm you're using HPE custom ESXi image
- CN1100R firmware is at least 7.13.xx (indicated in VMware HCL)
However, since NICs work outside of the LAG, it still sounds to me as a switch configuration issue.
As a side note, why do you require LAGs on your ESXi hosts? VMware already have multiple load-balancing policies available, that you can use to distribute network traffic between multiple uplink ports, without using port-channels.
Thanks for your help; I explained this ticket to VMware and they said "nope that won't work" which was hilarious. I said "shortest support call ever!" and then had to explain how it works NOW for us LOL.
In this instance we decided to skip LACP.
Thanks for your help.
Had a similar issue and the answer support gave you is incorrect.
It works fine with LACP as long as you choose 'Route based on IP hash' for your load balancing algorithm.
I have an HP 1810 switch setup with a 4 port LACP trunk (in the HP world a trunk is EtherChannel) and my management network is humming along just fine.
