What should switch interface settings be when connecting to VMWare ESXi host using load balancing?

System: USB GP 5412-92G-PoE+-2XG v2 zl Switch

System Firmware: K.16..01.0004

I have an ESXi 5.5U2 host with dual 10GbE ports, configured for IP load balancing.   Should the two 10GbE interfaces I connect to on my 5412zl switch be in:

1. auto-edge-port mode, admin-edge-port mode, or neither?
2. Should the trunk group they are in be in LACP or trunk mode?
