Route based on IP hash is not supported with Cisco UCS B200 M1/M2 blade servers that use UCS 6100 Series Fabric Interconnects (1013094)
When enabled, the NIC teaming policy involves a team of at least two NICs that selects an uplink based on a hash of the source and destination IP addresses of each packet.
Host network performance degradation can occur when using the Route based on IP hash NIC teaming policy. This is because a configuration using cross-stack link aggregation or grouping of multiple physical ports on UCS 6100 Series Fabric Interconnects deployed as a redundant pair are not supported solutions.
As a result of the degraded network performance, you may see:
- Intermittent packet loss.
- The vSphere Client or vCenter Server may lose its connection to the ESXi/ESX host.
