Vmware using mutliple physical NIC's


I am new to virtualization and am testing and gather info - I have a server with Vmware 4 installed. The server has 4 independant broadcom NIC's. What is the best method to utilize all of them?

I mean should I be using all four? eventually 5 servers are going to be consolidated.

I would use all 4 in the same pool yes but don't assign all 4 to each guest if that's what you meant. Some would say pull 1 out for managment leaving just 3 for guests.

If it's just the one vmware server with 5 guests I don't see the benefit though.
