link aggretation or trunk Brocade ICX 6450 with Esxi server

Hi there,
I would like to have group of ethernet 2 ports on my physical Esxi server to be working as a group of ports, I have already configured my Esxi host and selected 'the switch, NIC teaming option' with 'Route based on IP hash' and its put all 2 NICs on ESXi server as a team of NICs.  On my Brocade ICX does not matter if I make a 'trunk or link aggretation' the ESxi server is not happy with it.
I have offered:
brocadeICX-6450#trunk ethernet 1/1/23 to 1/1/24
brocadeICX-6450#wr mem
brocadeICX-6450#deploy trunk
It makes the trunk but the vcenter server disconnects me.  So i have to remove the trunk from these 2 ports
Then I put the link-aggregation as:
Brocade#interface ethernet 1/1/23 to 1/1/24
Brocade#link-aggregate off
Brocade#link-aggregate configure key 10000
Brocadelink-aggregate active
still the vcenter shows a cross sign over the NIC

I think I am missing something?  Help plz

Turns out that I do not have the license for VDS.  I have a simple VM switch.
