Normally, you make the interface availabel to the virtual server. Within the virtual server, you then specify the IP address depending on the tools available in the Virtual Server OS.

It has to have an IP, otherwise it is not going to be recognised on the network.

I suspect that you need to give more information about your setup for this Q to make sense.
