How do I define which NIC in a Hyper-V failover cluster is used for Live Migration traffic?

Greetings -

I keep stumbling on documentation with respect to Hyper-V failover clusters that recommends configuring a private network purely for Live Migration traffic.  I'm fine with this and I can do it resource-wise, but what I don't know is: how do I tell Hyper-V which NIC to use for this traffic?

It seems to pick on its own what NIC it is going to use for Live Migration.  If I had a crossover connection between two hosts that I wanted to dedicate to Live Migration, completely separate from Cluster heartbeat and the public interfaces, how do I tell the cluster to use that interface for Live Migration as a first choice, with the public connection obviously being the second?

Ah... I think I found it.

You need to go under "Services and applications" in the Failover Cluster Manager.  Click on the VM.  In the right hand-pane, you will see the VM and it's Configuration resource entry.  Right-click on the VM in the right-pane, choose "Properties".  There is a tab labeled "Network for live migration".
