Hi ,
We just migrated 1 of our host from another sites, all the trunking and cabling is done. I configured all the network but when  I am testing network management its failing.

I am also unable the ping the host IP.

Please suggest!

Watch Question

not being able to ping the ip USUALLY signifies a firewall issue. Did you make sure all the correct ports are open?

Ya it is.
Other things to check:
- Can you ping from the new host back to the machine you are trying to connect from?
- Permissions on your new host
- Network "type" on new host VM
- Virtual Network Card setup on host VM
Can we get some configs on the switches as well?

The above issue is solved, but there is another issue.
We have 8 nics configured for this esxi but when I am seeing the network it is only showing 4 active vmnics.
For more reference I am attaching my vmnics configuration pic.

Please advice!

The issue is resolved by disabling LACP

I disabled LACP during port configuration and trunking.
