    Port-channel witch vlans between ESXi 5.5 and ASA5506-X

    wh1test Lurker

      Hello everyone!

      I just purchased Cisco ASA 5506-X K9. I have two VMware ESXi 5.5 U3 (build 3568722) hosts.

      Now I need to connect each host to my Cisco ASA 5506. I want to configure vlan trunk with two vlans.


      Here is configuration on the ASA side:

      interface GigabitEthernet1/3

      channel-group 1 mode active



      interface GigabitEthernet1/4

      channel-group 1 mode active



      interface Port-Channel 1



      interface Port-Channel 1.93

      description Inside Vlan93

      vlan 93

      nameif inside

      security-level 100

      ip add



      interface Port-Channel 1.94

      description DMZ Vlan94

      vlan 94

      nameif dmz

      security-level 30

      ip add


      VMware side in configured in the same way as described in this video, but I cannot make it work (no traffic between Cisco and VMWare hosts). Please see screenshots in attachment.

      I have only one difference from video manual:

      Adapter    Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5719

      Link Layer Discovery Protocol is not available on this physical network adapter



      Can somebody help me please? How to configure VMWare side properly?
