I have windows 2012 with 4 ports in HP DL380 and a VM.
I assigned 1 of 4 ports to the virtual switch and everything seems work fine.
But when I changed the host computer's teamed nic (3 ports) to a static IP, it didn't update DNS server, then I found out that the IP address in DNS was the IP address of virtual switch.

I'm a bit confused with this virtual switch, haven't worked with it. First of all, if I want to balance good bandwidth with these 4 ports, how do I configure the virtual switch and how can I assign static IP addresses to both host and VM guest?
