Is it possible to add some commands to improve VMWARE server connected to Cisco Switches.

The VMWARE Servers use the same card for whole servers on them.

Which switch is this ?

You can enable spanning-tree portfast on the the switchports connected to the server. Disable DTP/PAGP negotiations on the ports connected to the server.You can haddcode the speed/duplex on the ports and the serverside if you have any speed/duplex issues.
