ESXI load balancing issue


There is any option to add physical NICs to vSwitch and disable load balancing ?
I have quad intel pro 1000 nic and i want to share all the ports with vSwitch like regular switch..

How can i replace the “unmanaged hp switch” to vSwitch without load balancing.

  1. The only way to do that is to lacp all of the connections, which would lacp management of esxi too (not recommended…)

    That pfsense VM can have multiple NICs, just create a port group with the same VLAN for each physical uplink with a different primary as the uplink connectivity.

    That would fix your issue without backing you into a corner…
