port channel server on nexus


if i need to port channel hp servers with 4 nic cards to two nexus 2k. ( i understand that nexus 7k dont support port channel on multiple fex)

so i have created two port channel on nexus (nexusk 2k1 - port chanel 1 and nexus 2k2 port channel 10) and connected ports 1 and 2 of server to nexus 2k1 and 3 and 4 ports of servers to nexus 2k2

if i need to port channel on server side do i need two port chanel or a single port channel on server? i would like to use the entire 4gig as a single team on the server with load balancing and redundancy if possible or what are the best options ?
