How to add second nic to virtual switch?

I took over a cluster with a distributed switch configured. Each host has 1 physical NIC uplinked. There’s an extra NIC on each though that I want to add. Without reconfiguring too much on the physical switch, do I just add the extra NIC on each hosts to the vDS uplink ports? Each of the physical ports of the physical switch is setup for trunk.

  1. Pretty much that’s what you do. Then you should go into the vDS and set one of the connections as primary and the other as standby. That way if one goes down the other one comes up automatically.
