I have Windows 2008 running in a 2 node cluster with 4 nics and Hyper-V and clustering installed as well as Clustered Shared Volumes.
I want to dedicate one nic to my Hyper-V virtual machines. If my primary nic has an ip of 172.22.19.23 can I assign on of my other nics to the same subnet for my Hyper-V virtual machines, at 172.22.19.35?
Can I do that or do I have to assign it to a completely different subnet.

I think I just answered this in your other question. When you create a virtual network using Hyper-V manager, uncheck "Allow management operating system to share this network adapter". That will remove it from the cluster host, and it won't have an IP address. All of your VMs can then use that NIC when you assign them to that virtual network.
