Hi no it shouldn't be but you should always use a protocol in etherchannel where possible rather than forcing on even if there example shows on ,protocols negotiate the connection rather than implying what it should be, I would say its the server side causing it ,theres nothing irregular with your config so unless your hitting a bug in the IOS its most likely the vmware setup
If you change it to lacp as a test and you get same issues with that as well as mode on then I would start checking the server side
Yes i agree with what has already been said, we always use LACP with your VM environment for reasons already stated, 9 times out of 10 when we see these issues it is always on the server side (its not our side, as we are network engineers ;0)
