ESX, load-balance and Cisco Switch

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I can't seem to get load-balance with my ESX 4 and my Cisco Switch (monitor with esxtop and zenoss)

ESX is Route based on ip hash
on the vSwitch and on the VM

We got a cisco switch 4507 with supervisor 6

Here is the config

port-channel load-balance src-dst-ip

interface Port-channel2
 switchport mode trunk
 switchport nonegotiate
 spanning-tree portfast

interface GigabitEthernet2/9
 switchport mode trunk
 switchport nonegotiate
 channel-group 2 mode on

interface GigabitEthernet2/18
 switchport mode trunk
 switchport nonegotiate
 channel-group 2 mode on
