Cisco LACP VDS multiple hosts

The documentation and videos seem to be all over the place to me so I thought I could create a simple enough example to get it straight.

Lets say I have 2 ESXi host machines and 2 network interfaces on each host and one physical switch

I also have one Distributed switch on all the VM's

What to setup on cisco?

Do I setup 2 port groups one for each vmware ESXi host?

or

Do I setup 1 port group and add all 4 ports to it?

What to setup on vmware?

Do I setup 2 LAGs one for each machine?

If I setup 2 LAGS does the Distributed switch get a LAG as its uplink and only need one uplink per machine?

or

Do I setup 1 LAG and add all vmnic interfaces to the one LAG?

And how would I set this up as uplinks on the Distributed switch?

The video seems to be too simplistic and the documentation doesn't seem to help me.
