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 ?

In access mode, the packets are NOT Tagged!

So you will not need to use Tagging on the vSwitches in ESXi.

I assume a single default VLAN will be applied ?

Load Balancing needs to be set correctly, and match..

This solution worked, I was able to establish the port-channel
access mode, default vlan on ESXI,  Load balancing set to IPHASH on ESXI , and load balancing on CISCO was set to src-dst-ip
