    Cisco LACP VDS multiple hosts

    PenguinJeff Novice

      The documentation and videos seem to be all over the place to me so I thought I could create a simple enough example to get it straight.

       

      Lets say I have 2 ESXi host machines and 2 network interfaces on each host and one physical switch

      I also have one Distributed switch on all the VM's

       

      What to setup on cisco?

      Do I setup 2 port groups one for each vmware ESXi host?

      or

      Do I setup 1 port group and add all 4 ports to it?

       

      What to setup on vmware?

      Do I setup 2 LAGs one for each machine?

      If I setup 2 LAGS does the Distributed switch get a LAG as its uplink and only need one uplink per machine?

      or

      Do I setup 1 LAG and add all vmnic interfaces to the one LAG?

      And how would I set this up as uplinks on the Distributed switch?

       

      The video seems to be too simplistic and the documentation doesn't seem to help me.
