We use LACP for one customer (it was a request) and yes its a feature which is only available when using a vDS.
A vDS comes with
- vSphere ESXi Enterprise Plus
- Robo Adv.?
I dont think that 99.999% of my customers have a need for using LACP to connect a Host to a switch. For us the normal LB Option in vSphere a enough. But we use 10G for a long time and now have a couple of 25G environments running so Bandwidth was never a real problem.
Iam pretty sure in large Clusters and 1000s of VMs the network comes more important.
Some kind of Stuff like swISCSI isnt supportet on a switch with LACP!
