Some servers lost connectivity on the same server as others

Running a HYPER-V host (Windows Server 2012 R2 Data Center), with 11 vm's connected via NIC Teaming connected to an Aruba 2920-48G Switch, 3 of the vm's are suddenly not able to connect (yellow explanation sign reads 'no Internet connection'). NIC cards shows no issues and NIC Teaming has all green up arrows. No issues in the event logs.

I removed the static IP's from the servers but they still won't connect to DHCP (with error 'unidentified'
I deleted the virtual NICs and recreated (same issue)
I checked DNS and there are no issues jumping out at me
I replaced all of the Ethernet cables on all NIC's on the server
I logged into the switch and didn't see any issues

I have never seen anything like this. Is there another area that I should be looking at? My fear is that more servers will lose connection and I am at a loss as to why.
Thanks

Make sure the network driver is up to date.

Is the VM's vNIC getting a VLAN tag? Is the VLAN set up correctly in the switch?

Thank you, yes, drivers are up to date. Yes, vlan tag. That is the strange part, other servers are in the same vlan, on the same server and (for now), running without issue.

Check the VLAN tag/trunk setup on the switch. Since a team is involved, the switch may be blocking the tag on a port the VMs currently reside on in the team.

I contacted HP to report the issue an they suggested changing the setting in NIC Teaming from 'Switch Independent' to 'LACP' and create associated LACP Trunk on the switch. This worked. Thanks
