So I have a Dell MD3200i that currently has 4 drives in it and configured for a Vsphere environment.  The Vsphere environment has 2 host running ESXi 5.o in a cluster. I just added 8 more drives to the md3200i and will configure them in a separate RAID 10 storage array. Right now the esxi host has a iscsi software adapter set for the current 4 disk lun on the md3200i. I want to add the 2nd storage array on a seperate adapter and on a vlan. I do have a Cisco switch setup with vlan10 and 3 ports plugged into the MD3200i HBA (port 1-3), I tested the switch and know that the vlans are indeed working.  My goal is to separate the traffic for the iscsi. I am just testing right now and need to order more nic cards but wanted to figure out how to configure this.  

I am not sure how to configure the VMKernel port and make sure the traffic is segregated properly. Any ideas how I should do this? If you need more info let me know. I am somewhat new to this but know my way around.

Thanks
