Hyper V, Ensuring Servers can't "See" each other on the same host.

Hello, I have a Hyper V host (HP DL386 G6) running Hyper V v2 on SErver 2008 R2.
It has  a VM running SBS2008 which is a DC, AD, Exchange server and a few other things.
It runs fine.

I have taken a copy of that VM and I want to run another version of it to test run some migrations on the SAME hyper V host.

The question I have is, is it possible to set this up to the live SBS2008 server is running and CANNOT see the copy of it running on the same HYPER V host?
I have the live SBS2008 VM running of for example "External1" virtual network (so linked to a physical network card).
I want to be able to set up a PRIVATE or internal virtual network and run the copy of the live SBS2008 to test migrations (It'll be deleted after a day or so).
It's obviously very important that they can't see each other.

Is this possible?

I think it's by setting a Vlan ID to an virtual internal network that is separate to the live VM.
But would like to know for sure if this is the case.

Just set it up on a new virtual network that is private instead of external.

I have set it up as a network that is INTERNAL atm, the reason is I want a viurtual XP client to be able to see the test SBS2008 server to test connectivity and so on.

In this case is INTERNAL not as good as PRIVATE?

Create a private network and assign it to the test VMs. Traffice will only then flow between those machines.

Thanks to both of you for clearing that up.
I tried that out and it works fine.
