Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) on a vSphere distributed switch allows network devices to negotiate automatic bundling of links by sending LACP packets to a peer. However, there are some limitations when using LACP with a vSphere distributed switch.

LACP only works with IP Hash load balancing and Link Status Network failover detection.

LACP is not compatible with iSCSI software multipathing.

vSphere only supports one LACP group per distributed switch, and only one LACP group per host.

LACP settings do not exist in host profiles.

LACP between two nested ESXi hosts is not possible.

LACP does not work with port mirroring.
