Hi Experts,
I have 3 esxi hosts in a vmware cluster.
Two of them have a warning because of management redundancy.
But each vswitch has to nics connected to a trunk with ip hash.

See the picture:

    have you tried disconnecting the cable from vmnic0, and checking with PING, you can ping the default gateway

    repeat above with vmnic4 disconnected ?

    I assume you have HA enabled?

    Yes, HA is enabled.

    ok first of all I did a Reconfigure for HA on each host.

    Since now all warnings are gone.
