Teamed NIC don't appear in Virtual Machines; NIC appear in Virtual have different name

Last Modified: 2013-11-09
I have 4 NIC (two on board and two PCI) teamed as two (Private and Public) on a physical derver (HP580 DL-64 bit) . OS is windows 2003 R2 64 bit version, installed Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 64 bit. Created virtual machines. Now when I tring to add NIC, it shows only two in drop down menu and that too with different names, which I could not correspond to the NIC on physical server as these have differet names on physical box.
On Physical Server
4 NIC (Two HP 370i  -- one each labelled as Private Pry and Public Pry) (another two HP 380t PCI -one each labelled as Private Sec and Public Sec). One each from the set is teamed and two teams are labelled as Private Team and Public teams. These are working on physical box without any issue.

Virtual server
When I am trying to add NIC on the virtual server, I have only two NIC's in drop down menu as below:
one with name "External network (HP 371i network adaptor" and second as "External (HP371i network adaptor #2).
Even though I have tried to installed both, it doesn't ping to any server.
Also I must know which one is which on the physical box as these are configured to talk to different ports on firewall.

Please help and thanks for your time
