vSwitch and Procurve 2510G Loadbalancing Trunk

Hello,

I have a Proliant dl380g6 with ESX4 and want to configure a 2G loadbalincing vSwitch with a Procurve 2510G (24) Switch. Each time I tried to I got network problems (some clients could not access the ip, vm's and so on).

So my question is what configuration would be the best/functional soultion with that environment.

On HP Switch I set the trunk mode to "trunk", what I read on vmware forum.

What will be the best "balancing mode" for the vSwitch on esx- server. Tried every mode except mac based one.

Waht else has to be considered when enabling a trunk?

Set the switch trunk- mode to "trunk".


Set the vSwitch Mode to IP- HASH.

That sould work, suggested me the HP- Support.

I couldn't test that, cause had no time.
