Binding Virtual Network to Multiple NIC ports in HyperV

I am in the process of building a VM to run Exchange 2010. I have a separate NIC card with 4 ports that I would like to dedicate specifically to this VM. I'm new to virtual networking so my question is what is the best way to go about binding these 4 ports to this one virtual machine?

Do I just use the HP Networking Utility to Team the 4 ports and then assign it to the VM?

At the moment this is the only thing I can think of doing. If anyone else has any better solutions I would love to hear about it.

Yep. Exactly.

Team the NICs in HP Network Utility so they are presented to the system as one "virtual" NIC. Then, create an external virtual network which is bound to the teamed NIC. Set the Exchange VM to use that virtual network.

I have customers with 8+ NIC ProLiants which are all configured in this way. I would generally be an advocate of sharing the NICs among the VMs instead rather than dedicating to a VM, but that's just personal preference - and of course, I don't know what other load you have on the host.
