Here are all options for you

Here are all options for you:

Resolution

 

 

 

Option 1:

Select “Route based on IP hash” on the vSwitch. Configure Port channel on the Catalyst switches to bundle the links to the physical adapters.

Option 2:

Select “Route based on source MAC hash” as the load balancing method on the vSwitch. Do not configure port channel on the Cisco Catalyst Switches.

Option 3:

If “Route based on the originating virtual switch port ID” is used on the vSwitch, do not team the Virtual Ethernet Adapters as Active/Active on the virtual servers. You may use as Active/Standby on the Virtual Servers. Do not configure port channel on the Cisco Catalyst Switches
