NIC Team Move Standby to Active
What you need to do is select Configuration, Networking, select vSwitch0, Properties.

Highlight vSwitch and Click Edit, and then move the stanby NIC to Active.

So the above is how you change a Standby NIC from Standby to Active.

There is likely to be a moment, when connection is lost, whilst networking stack is changed, but if you re-connect, it will be fixed.
