Pardon my ignorance. I like to improve perfomance by assigning specific physical NIC to my guest machines. How do I do this from Virtual Center?
Thank you in advance.
Virtual Machines connect to virtual networks named "virtual machine port groups".
You can have several port groups on a virtual switch.
Each virtual switch has 0 or more physical network cards.
What you could do is create a virtual switch with 1 physical nic or more and then create a new virtual machine port group.
Then assign only the virtual machines you want to use that physical nic to that port group.

Thanks for the response.
I've assigned one additional physical NIC to my "VM Network" port group and both physical NIC says "Negotiate" under "Network Adapters".
I assume this means the network traffic from my guest machines are being split/carried into my two physical NIC - yes?
Also, do I need to specify additional virtual NIC when I create my virtual guest in order to take advantage of physical NIC?
