HP Network Team and VMWare network team

I have an esx installation (5.1) and stand-alone proliant servers. I have teamed the NIC(s) on my ESX host per the following document:

 

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1004048

 

It specifies load blance be set to src-dst-ip.

 

Will that work for the HP team on teh stand alone servers if set to Auto/Auto and LACP running on the Cisco 6500?

 

This document seems to suggest src-mac is the right load balance for HP.

How are people handlign the difference in suggested load-balance?
