Hi VMware experts.

Currently I'm running ESXi (paid for version) on a couple of Dell R710s.

At the moment each server configured via vSpehere so the Management Network and all the VMs on the Server are just using one of the 4 physical network cards.

Obviously this isnt making best use of the hardware. How can I set this up so I can make best use of the four cards sharing amongst the VMs? I'm using storage on the server so dont need to worry about SAN links.vSphere diagram of network config
I'm looking for a dummies guide with a little bit of hand holding.  Before suggesting RTFM, I've had a look at the VMware docs and need further guidance.  Am familiar with networking but not VMware networking...
