Hi Experts,

When I create a new vswitch on my vsphere 6.0 environment I have a question regarding the vswitch itself and the VM NETWORK on the vswitch.

On the vswitch under NIC teaming I set:

ROUTE BASED IP HASH
LINK STATUS ONLY
YES
NO

But what about the VM NETWORK also on the same vswitch ?
What do you recommend, also select:

ROUTE BASED IP HASH
LINK STATUS ONLY
YES
NO

and also select : OVERRIDE SWITCH FAILOVER ORDER ?

I just have standard switches, no distributed.

All options need to be the same ON ALL.

You will find if you set the vSwitch properties, the same settings will follow all the way through, they should but check!

this can cause weird networking to occur, if they are different.
