I have an ESXi 6.7 host and it has one active nic and one standby nic in VSS, load-balance is portid.
and I create a port-channel with these two nic members in Switch for testing static LACP.
In this scenario, I ping the testbed from some other hosts. However, some hosts cannot ping it and some hosts can ping it. Even they are all in same L2 environment.
If I shutdown one port on switch, the issue is gone.
I think the load-balance configuration both on switch and hosts should be the root cause.
Is it possible to keep the two ports port-channel on switch and make the host online?
Need Experts' help explain its workflow.
Thanks in advance
First of all, LACP is not supported with a standard switch. You can only do a static LAG and if using it must use the IP hash algorithm.
