Port-channeling between ESXI(5.1) and Cisco 4500( ver 15.2)
Posted on 2014-11-14
I need to setup port-channeling from 4 NICS in the ESXi (ver 5.1) to 4 ports in Cisco 4500 using ether channel group mode
ON, I will have to use these port-channel in access mode, I think this design is similar to VLAN tagging using external VLAN tagging (EST mode)
Do I have to use certain load balancing balancing on Cisco and ESXi ? or it will work with different load balancing on both ends, Also do i have to have same vlan number on ESXI and Cisco 4500 in order this to work ?
