Under po1 and 2 do a sh and no sh

than

Can you post "sh etherch summ"?

can you post "sh ether deta"?

Is the SXI server configured as po also?

Hi - use "channel-group 2 mode active" to enable LACP.   On the ESX configure it as "route based by origional source IP"

Works for us

Hi,

I suggest you use LACP as the channel protocol for u r ether channels.

I see it is missing in u r config.

Thanks
