I have a ESXI 4.0 host with 4 nics setup for teaming (fault tolerance and load balancing). I have 2 vms setup on the host, when I setup bridging using 2 or more nics on the vm, the bridge nic shows bytes sent but 0 bytes received and the physical nics show sent bytes 0 and bytes being received. I am not using a vswitch and there is only 1 vlan, I understand bridging is not necessary, but my understanding is it should work.
Is a vswitch necessary for this to work or some other special configuration?
