I have a need to assign an extra IP addr to two VMs (running Win 2003 & IIS)
so that we can create an extra IIS instance to listen on the extra IP addr.

The two VMs are part of an NLB.

Pls give me step by step, click by click (with screen shots where possible)
on how to go about doing this.  I suppose I don't need an extra virtual
NIC but if needed, pls provide the details instruction to do it

Like wolfcamel said: just do it as if it was a physical server.
Depending on what you want to do in IIS you could also use host header values (when setting up multiple websites on one IIS server).

Add an extra NIC to the VM, and assign the IP address to that nic.

Network Connections -> 'Local Area Connection' (May be named something else) -> [Right Click to Access] Properties -> [Select] Internet Protocol Version 4 -> [Click] Properties -> [Click] Advanced] -> [Click] Add

If you need to add a new NIC however you do it from the VM Console.

I suppose to add a new virtual NIC from "VM Console", you
meant do it from vCenter?

Can provide step by step, click by click instructions on how to
add the extra NIC to a VM?
