  • 1.  Port Channel using 2 host

    Posted Nov 27, 2015 06:33 PM

    Hi Folks,

    Network guy needing some Vmware advise :smileyhappy:

    Is it possible to put 1 NIC from 2 host into a LAG group?

    When I do this one of the links on the physical switch get's suspened.  Maybe loop prevention?

    Just trying to figure out of it's a limitation or maybe a configuration error on my end.

    I have 2 host, 1 NIC from each host plugged into the physical switch, who's ports are members of the same port channel.

    using VDS with esx 6.0

    Thanks

    Welcome to the Community,

    This is likely a network configuration issue. A port channel is used for end-to-end connection, e.g. from switch to switch, or from a switch to a single host.
