FortiGate-VM on vCloud Director with VXlan network

Hi,
 
I have a single FortiGate-VM running on vCloud Director which has one of it's 4 network interfaces connected to a VXlan network (terminated at the vswitch).
 
Just this interface, port 2, is behaving abnormal.. I don't see much traffic other than broadcast (so it does at least something) and lot's of dropped packets:
 
port1    <WAN>
 
            RX packets:55598868 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

The network is set up in vmware to reject promiscuous mode or mac adress changes, but I'm not in a HA situation so I think I don't need it?
 
There is also a FortiWeb on the same network which does connect just fine, I do see it's broadcast messages if i do a packet capture on the FortiGate.
 
Adapters are all VMXNET 3.
 
Does this sound familiar to any of you? I can ask the provider to change settings in vmware, but need a good reason to do so.
