We have setup a new Windows 2012 Datacenter server. Within this setup are three virtualized environments. How do we go about allocating hardware resources to specific environments?

For example, the server has 4 NICs. How can we make it so that NIC #1 is assigned to the 'host' environment, NIC #2 is assigned to virtual server A NIC #3 is assigned to virtual server B, and NIC #4 is assigned to virtual server C?

Likewise we would like to allocate the processor cores to each environment. Where do we go to set up processor allocation?
