    One of my staff set up a virtual SQL cluster and I am quite sure the host computer only had one NIC.  He set up two virtual NIC's on each VM, one private, one public.

    I'm not sure what you are actually asking. Each machine in the cluster needs two NICs - one to provide network access and one for the hearbeat/monitoring between the cluster.
