Configure the appropriate teaming policy for a given implementation

The teaming policy that you will choose is going to depend on your physical switch setup. I have provided a table below of the teaming policy, whether or not it creates multiple VTEPs and the required vDS version for the teaming option. Multiple VTEPs will need to be created in some instances in order to balance the load among the physical NICs. The table is a summary reference from the VMware NSX 6 Documentation Center.

Teaming Policy Multiple VTEPs vDS Version
Ether Channel No 5.1 +
Failover No 5.1 +
LACPv1 No 5.1 +
LACPv2 No 5.5
Source Mac (MAC Hash) Yes 5.5
LBT (Unsupported Unsupported Unsupported
