Nic Teaming 5000 Series Switch

How do you configuring Teaming on a 5000 series switch?

The switch is connected to a VMware ESXi 5.5 server with a dual channel 10 Gb Intel NIC.  I want the vSwitch to aggregate the link.  What is happening is the failover not link aggregation, IE data is going down and up one but not both of the paths.  As part of this setup there is to be a VLAN in use.

Commands to setup the port-channel and Ethernet ports would be most helpful.

By default that is the correct behavior.  The VM uses one of the link and when that link fails the other one takes over. It is more of high availability feature for VM then a load balancing.

Thank you for your reply first of all.  

 

What can I do on the Switch side to get all the connected ports being used to move data? I want load balancing.
