Hyper-V VM with 2 Virtual NIC's

We are moving over our small network to a virtual enviornment and plan on implimenting a couple of LeftHand SAN servers.  My question is technically each physical server should have 2 NIC's.  One for the SAN enviornment LAN, and another for the production LAN.

We have a couple of Domain controllers, an Exchange 2k7 server, and a file server for the most part.  All will be virtualized in Hyper-V

In Hyper-V each VM has only 1 "Virtual Machine Bus Network Adapter"  Is there a way to add a second one?  OR how else would I accomplish segmenting the server to communicate on both of the SAN LAN, and the Production LAN like I would in a physical enviornment without conflict?

We plan on using iSCSI.  But this still does not answer how I would accomplish this.  In a physical enviornment a server would have 2 NIC's  1 cat5 cable connected to our production LAN, say on a 10.11.168.x Class C subnet, and 1 connected to a dedicated gigabit switch on the SAN side with a 192.168.0.x Class C subnet.

The idea in a physical enviornment would look like the attached.  However In a Hyper-V enviornment if my Domain Controller, my File Server, and my Exchange Server are virtualized, the only NIC that shows up in each VM is the "Microsoft Virtual Machine Bus Network Adapter"  

If each VM has only one Virtual NIC, how do I assign different IP's on seperate subnets?  Or do I just use this one Virtual NIC and assign it 2 different IP's?

Alright, I'm a flippin idiot.  I am new to Hyper-V and I was assuming I could not add a second NIC.  I saw the NIC settings and didnt see an option to add a second there like there is Under the IDE section for a second hard drive so I assumed you couldnt.  

I found it under the "Add Hardware" section.  So I'm an idiot.  Thanks for your help.
