im trying to configure ip hash on my uplinks on my vmware dvs. It was very easy on the standard switch but when i edit settings of the dvswtich uplinks then the options are greyed out. I understand that the control plane manages the dvs and the IO plane is used for traffic etc on each host, but how do i actually change the load balancing method for dvs?

    Can change your Load Balancing policy on the DVuplink ports?

    Hope this helps.
