I want to configure bonding on vmware ESX 3.5 server with 2 NICs interfases. The server is a HP DL 360 G5.  The NIC's are intel broadcom.

Is this possible? if not, which is the way to use  the 2 NICs interfases to load balancing?

In short:

Create a virtual switch and add your NICs to this virtual switch.

Edit the properties of the vSwitch and go to the "NIC teaming" tab. You can choose the teaming policy depending on the settings of your network switch.

Any VM configured to use this virtual switch will use this teaming arrangement.

Details for these steps can be found in the excellent ESX manuals that can be found on the vmware website.
