Here's the thing:
I have a Win2003 server with 2 NIC's. the server does an important role on network but only needs one NIC. I want to keep this NIC just for this server. On the server though I need to host a VMWare Win2003 server to do a minor role requiring 2 NICs, can I set the VMWare machine to use ONLY the host machines second NIC for all it's workload?

Thanks

Yes, you need to ensure that both the VM Guest's NICS are bridged to the physical second nic (on the host).

On the host server, configure the second nic with Static IP or DHCP IP, and ensure that the following is disabled.

Client for MS Networks, and configure the TCP/IP settings, Advanced, DNS, and untick register this connection address in DNS, apply okay.

You are done.
