The network configuration on the host is transparent to the VM. However, if it's not configured in a supported way it may certainly cause issues.
Please take a look at e.g. https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1004048 for what's supported.
Especially "Supported Cisco configuration: EtherChannel Mode ON – ( Enable EtherChannel only)" is important.
How are the switch ports set up? Can you post the config?
