if you want to split your network management and virtual machine network and use two different network cards, you would create another virtual switch.

at present you have a virtula switch called vSwith0, Create a new virtual switch vSwitch1.

and then add a network interface card (you may have to remove from vSwith0), and add the physical network card to vSwitch1.

see here for details
