QNAP NAS ts459u

I have a QNAP nas that i am using as shared storage with vmware and during the setup of this environment i only had one switch port i could use to plug in the NAS device.  Now that i have converted some servers to VMs i have additional switch ports to use and want to add the secondary NIC on qnap.  After trying this initally and failing i wanted to see if any one has gone through a similar experience.  

Do i need to change the config for the switch first?  

Any advice is appreciated!

Create teaming of these two Network card and then connect to switch

Mode support by this NAS Balance-rr, Active Backup, Balance XOR, Broadcast,  Balance-tlb and Balance-alb

For IEEE 802.3ad/Link Aggregation:

Your switch must supports IEEE 802.3ad Dynamic link aggregation.
