I have created a Server 2012 VM on ESXi5.1 and have added multiple network cards.

Am I right in assuming that each NIC in the VM will "attach" to a different physical NIC in the virtual switch (I have 3 NIC's in the virtual switch)?

If so, can I use the in-built network teaming in 2012 to improve network bandwidth to and from the server?
