As anyone been able to configure ESX 2.5.1 to use Etherchannel?
VMWAREs documentation claims that ESX supports LACP to create an EtherChannel. As per VM support I have configured my ESX server correctly and it should use LACP establish an Etherchannel. However on my switch, I see no evidence of LCAP traffic of connectivity via the port-channel. See below for output.
Has anyone here, in the cisco community, got this to work? If yes, would you please advise and share sample configuration.
core-rtr#sh interfaces port-channel 1
Port-channel1 is up, line protocol is down (notconnect)
Hardware is EtherChannel, address is 0000.0000.0000 (bia 0000.0000.0000)
MTU 1500 bytes, BW 100000 Kbit, DLY 100 usec,
reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 1/255
Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set
input flow-control is off, output flow-control is unsupported
ARP type: ARPA, ARP Timeout 04:00:00
Last input never, output never, output hang never
Last clearing of "show interface" counters 4d23h
Input queue: 0/2000/3/0 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops: 0
We will now include the commands necessary to configure LACP. The steps include the Cisco IOS Software and CatOS commands required. Pick the appropriate command depending on the software that is running on the switch.
Have you tried changing LACP on the ESX to be active, and not passive? I have encountered issues with other vendors implementation of LACP even though all documentation suggest ACTIVE-PASSIVE "should" work. I don't see partner state field in show lacp neigh??Sorry, I have no specific info on ESX configuration.
