It's LACP.

Not currently; there are multiple VLANs on that LACP though, but cluster 
VLAN is the same as some VM network.

Our next try will be to undo de LACP an just use 1 link for VMs and the 
other only for the cluster VLAN... and isolate cluster from the current 
VLAN too.

Yes, but haven't tried UDPU, yet.

This is the strange part, and the reason for my mail. Otherwise I'd be 
preparing maintenance windows to change node's network config right 
away... :)

Thanks a lot
