I am setting up a new ESXi 5.0 host and having some difficulty with using multiple NIC's for the Management Network.
I am using HP's iLO to configure the Management Network. If I use a single NIC I don't have any issues and it works perfectly but if I add a second NIC I can't ping the IP.
I am using an Extreme Networks switch with the basic command:
enable sharing <master port> grouping <port list> algorithm address-based L3
On the host I use the space to select the NIC's for the trunk. I verified the MAC's and I also verified the ports by unplugging them just to make sure I am not missing something simple.
Is there something special that needs to be done to get ESXi 5.0 to work? I have the same setup from 3.x through 4.x and no issues but with the latest version it fails the test as well as any ping.
