No you can't just enable them, if you do then the devices will have more than one IP address and DNS will fail, also it will duplicate traffic.

What make are the servers?

Can you let me know the models as well sorry. With HP they allow you 'Team' the NICs so that one will act for redundancy.

Try this link and download the utilities for the network card and see if those have the options required, also make sure you check in device manager first to see what make your NIC is:
