NIC assignments on Hyper-V server

I have a Hyper-V server (windows server 2012) setup with two virtual servers.

The physical server has 4 NICs.  One (NIC 1) is needed for the external LAN connection and the others are needed for use with the two virtual servers.

What I am getting is the physical server is picking up 3 different IP's apart from the static IP assigned to NIC 1

How do I configure these so that each virtual server uses NIC's 2 and 3 and the 4th is not used.  Is this best practice?

Thanks in advance

Have a quick read of a similar question I answered recently: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Virtualization/Q_28252175.html

Based on your scenario, just disable NIC4 from the host and configure another 'external' virtual NIC for your second VM to use NIC3. The key point to remember is to deselect 'Allow management operating system to share this network adapter'.

Let me know how you get along and if you need further assistance.
