Horacio, The answer depends

Horacio,

 

The answer depends on whether your team will be load balanced or just in Network fault tolerance

 

Have a look at this link:-

So if I need the nics teamed

So if I need the nics teamed to have more bandwidth you have to configure the ethernet channel ports, correct?

Is not more bandwidth but

Is not more bandwidth but rather load balances traffic between multiple links.  So, lets say you have 2 links in a Portchannel and 2 PCs sending traffic.  The first PC will use one of the link in the Portchannle and the other PC will use the other link. So, the traffic from multiple hosts will use multiple links.
