Question in respect to Port Channel

Hello Experts,
I need your opinion on this scenario where one ESX host has two LAN cards connected to L2 Switch. In this, will the traffic use both links or one would be blocked due to STP and if yes then do I need to configure port channel on switch so that both links to be utilized but keep in mind the other side (esx host) we can't make settings in respect to port channel.

Thanks

Question in respect to Port Channel

You need to create the port-channel on the switch side and also the teaming on the ESX server side to use both the interface of the server.
