Its simple.
Go to Host--->Configuration--->Networking---> Properties of the standard switch.
Select network Adapters and remove the NIC from the switch.
Add it to the vDS.
make sure the single NIC is sufficient to handle the traffic if you are removing the NIC from ateaming. If you are removing the only NIC card in the switch, make sure you have all the machines disconnected on the switch.

make sure you do not exceed the max allowed uplink ports on the VDS!
