Pick NIC on a Hyper-V Machine


 I'm configuring a Hyper-V server which has 4 NIC's. the 1st Nic is assign to the Hyper-V box itself.
The 2nd NIC is assigned as the External NIC which I picked when I config the 1St VM mahine, an IIS server. All is working correctly. I assigned the 3rth NIC a name of MySQLPHP and I want to use that NIC for the next Hyper-V Server which will be a Win2K8 Enterprise Srv on which MYSQL and PHP will be install on it. When I get to the part where I can choose a NIC I don't see the 3rd NIC that I named MYSQLPHP.
What I'm I ding wrong?

Thank you for all your help to come.

Was the third NIC configured with a separate network in the network manager in Hyper-V?

In order to assign a NIC to a VM, it has to have a Virtual Network assigned to it in Hyper-V. In the Hyper-V console, go to the Virtual Network Manager. When that opens, you'll see a list of networks available for use on VMs. Each one is typically assigned a specific NIC for this. Hyper-V doesn't assign NICs to VMs, instead it assigns Virtual Networks.

Is that correct?

Change the view of the Network Connections screen so it shows all details. When you do that you can see the full name of the NIC under the Device Name column. You can then match it up the way you want.
