VMware and NIC Teaming and Etherchanneling

OK, listen up!
 
1.  VMware ESX 3.5 does NOT care about your NICS from a vSwitch perspective….that is, you can mix and match Broadcoms and Intel’s to your hearts content.
2.  Cisco DOES care about your NICS from an Etherchanneling perspective.  You can only Etherchannel ONE BRAND per port group.  If you have any questions, comment or shoot me an email.
 
There is not a lot out there with respect to VMware teaming (vSwitch) and Etherchanneling.  I’ve found out the tricks and now have a 10 host (Dell R900’s) working swimmingly!
