ESX 3.5 NIC Teaming Issue
Posted on 2010-09-22
Hopefully this is an easy one for the ESX experts. I have a Dell R900 running ESX 3.5 U4. It was using only one NIC at the time of build. I now connected the other three (total of 4) NIC's and wanted to use all under same IP. Once plugged in, I see all four NIC's under "Network Adapters", however, when under "Netorking - Properties - vSwitch(Edit) - NIC Teaming" none of the three newly connected NIC's show. Back to Network Adapters the three list as none under vSwitch, whereas the first NIC lists vSwitch0. Am I doing something wrong here?
Additional information. I have another server exactly the same only it uses DHCP, they detect and show up under NIC Teaming. Any help is greatly appreciated.
