Using Hyper-V with different virtual subnets

I'm a newbie on Hyper-V.
I have three virtual machines on a box with two NIC's. The VM's and host are all 2008R2.
They are set up as follows:
Host Hyper-Vmachine: NIC 1 192.168.1.10/24
Virtual DC1: NIC1 192.168.1.11/24
Virtual DC2: NIC1: 192.168.1.12/24

What I want to do is to set up the third virtual machine (Virtual DC3) in a different subnet (e.g., 192.168.2.0/24) so that I can create a different site for AD testing.

Can I do that? If so,
(a) what address do I use for the second physical card?
(b) what address do I use for the Virtual DC3 virtual card?
(c) do I need to create another VM running ISA or Forefront?

Thanks in advance.

Well the questions can be answered differently depending on your hardware please read over.

Now you can just use a physical network card to seperate as well.

For now, I'm going to try it with just the second NIC; I added a router between that NIC and the other network.

But I think I have something fundamentally wrong (maybe an issue with multi-homing on my actual machine).
Physical network 1Gig: 192.168.33.11 for the NIC and GW is 192.168.33.2
Everything works fine for the physical and virtual machines connected here.

Physical network 10/100: 192.168.1.11 for the NIC and GW is 192.168.1.1
When I uninstall the NIC and bound virtual network, then reinstall and configure just the NIC, I can ping everything from the host machine.
But as soon as I add the Virtual Network bound to this NIC, I can ping the local address on the virtual and actual machines, but I can no longer ping the router/ gateway.

Gotta be missing something real obvious?

From the host or the VM?

Neither, actually. Everything is OK on the real and virtual NIC1 (192.168.33.0), but neither works on the 192.168.1.0 network. For host and virtual, I can ping the local address (e.g., 192.168.1.11 or 192.168.1.101), but can't ping the gateway for that host or VM (e,g,m 192.168.1.1).

Well you should be able to add a NIC to a seperate subnet don't without issues. So, if you don't add the Virtual network you can ping the gateway?

Yes, that's correct.

Yeah, this didn't make sense to me either. Unless you have a real quick solution, I think I'll just set things up per your first post using the pure virtual LAN or connect to NIC1. I can forget about the second NIC for now and post a new question on that topic later if I don't get it figured out. Thanks for the help.
