Hyper-V Virtual Network with Internet Access

I have Hyper-V running on a production server in my environment.  I would like to create a couple virtual lab servers.  However, I only want these servers to be visible to each other and have access to the Internet...no access to my production/private network.

One of these lab servers will be a dc/dns server and the other an exchange server.  I'm afraid if they see my production dc and exchange server, bad things will happen.  I have not defined any IP address scheme yet.

Is it possible to make this happen?

My physical server has additional available NIC's if necessary.

You basically need to create a private network, which will keep internal network communication isolated. I would recommend creating your internal virtual lab with a different network subnet, so there is no cross talk.

Best of luck!
