What smartport role needs to be set on an ESW switch for a VMWare ESXi box (on cisco UCS210)

I've got a UCS210 with about 8 VMs running on it (SBS2008, and a bunch of other 2003/2008 servers).

Currently its hooked up to a unmanaged 3com gigabit switch and I'm only using a single Gb ethernet interface.

I'm implementing a whole small business pro infrastructure internally here, and this will probably the the first a several hopefully easy questions.

What smartport role do I need to assign to the port that I'm hooking this box up to?

Also, is there any type of trunking/load balancing I could do with the dual NICs built into the UCS to the ESW?  Any general best practices info for integrating VMs into a cisco SB pro network would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Ben

Did you ever find an answer to this? I have 2960S and 3750 switches that I'm also wanting to know the answer to this.
