I have 3 x ESXi v6.5 running in a vSphere 6.5 HA environment.  I have two NICs per ESXi host running in active/passive mode... One always being in standby.  Each NIC is physically part of a Dell FX2 core vFarbric switch...  My goal is to make it to if the NIC shows admin status of down (not of course if it's failed) the standby becomes active and the active become standby.  The reason being if the switch it's plugged into fails or shows no connectivity I need it to fail over.
