NIC Teaming Best Practices - Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V

I am setting up a new Hyper-V host for a Customer.  It is an HPE ML350 Gen10 with a 4 port network adapter and a dedicated iLO port.  I want to set up a NIC team of course, but I am confused about how to include all the adapters in the team and still be able to give the host OS a fixed IP address.  In the past I have excluded one NIC from the team for the host, but I am reading some blogs that seem to indicate that is a bad idea in terms of redundancy.  On the host I am looking at right now, looking at the network adapters, the only one I can specifically modify the settings of is the one excluded from the team.  Am I missing something?
