Hi we have some new ESXi hosts that are having issues connecting to Vsphere and wondered if the eth-trunk on our Huawei CloudEngine switches is configured correctly.


Current config below.


ESXi:

vswitch0 is configured with

  • Route based on IP hash

  • failover detection is link only

  • both adapters are set to active


eth-trunk:

description Trunk to VirtualHost

 port link-type trunk

 port trunk allow-pass vlan 2

 load-balance src-dst-ip


Interfaces:

description Trunk to VirtualHost

 eth-trunk 2

 storm suppression broadcast 3

@tezza hi,
as you said, your vswitch0 is configured both adapters are set to active, does this mean the eth-trunk is configured with dynamic lacp? will you please confirm that?

Also the documentation from VMware states that LACP should only be used with distributed switches from what I can see and recommends etherchannel instead.

From their website.
"Route based on IP Hash load balancing requires that the physical switch ports be combined into an EtherChannel (sometimes called an aggregation bond, port-channel). This ensures that the same hashing algorithm is used for traffic returning in the opposite direction."

Hello,
The load balancing in nic teaming was configured as 'Route based on IP hash' which caused the UDP packets to duplicate. changed it to 'Route based on originating Port ID'.
Thanks
