I am setting up a vmware 6.7 host with 6 nic's in a team connected to a HP procurve switch. To my best knowledge the vmware virtual switch should be configured with "route based on IP-hash" for load balancing in the "Nic teaming"-settings. The relevant HP procurve ports should be configured as " Trk1 Trunk"
I've done this before on earlier vmware editions, but this time it won't work. When I enable trunking in the switch, i can ping the management ip for a minute longer, and then it stops. I tried to restart the management network to no avail. What's strange is that the management network gets an IP from the DHCP, but it's still unreachable with ping, and the gui webpage does not answer. When removing the trunk settings on the switch I can contact the management network again.

Any clues people?
