each ether-channel is configure like that:

interface Port-channel7
switchport access vlan 69
switchport mode access
spanning-tree portfast



each Interface is configure like that:

interface GigabitEthernet8/0/1
description  NIC4
switchport access vlan 69
switchport mode access
channel-group 7 mode on
spanning-tree portfast

First I would verify that the problem lies within the port channel and not just the connection to the servers.

I would reduce the connections to the servers down to a single connection with no port-channel configuration.
If you cannot get an IP then the port-channel has nothing to do with this. From there I would plug a laptop in to the port to see if you get an address. If you don't get an address start looking further into your network. If you do get an address start looking at the server configuration.
If you do get an IP, then it's time to look further in to your port channel. Commands such as "show logging", "show int port-channel xx", and "show etherchannel summ" can be helpful. Also, you may need to check flow-control settings.

I don't see a problem with the EtherChannel configuration from the switch side, it alls looks fine.

You probably have a problem with the vswitch configuration in VMware.

YOU SHOULD NOT have any VLAN numbers configured on your vswitch configuration, since all 3 VMs are part of the same VLAN that is going native (untagged) to the switch. So please check that there is no VLAN configured on that trunk as it goes out from the ESX.

Or just post a snapshot of the configuration of your vswitch and we'll tell you.
