2012 Hyper V setup on separate network card

Hi,

Just learn that best practice is to set an hyper v network on a separate NIC.
If I understand correctly, one NIC is dedicated for the Hyper V host, and another NIC for all VHD's.
I cannot find the steps on how to set it up correctly.

would you know of any tutorials will take me steps by steps on how to achieve this?

Thanks

You can dedicate network card(s) to VMs, yes. The setup is simple. Jn Hyper-V manager, create an external switch, name it, select a network card, and make sure the check box to allow the management OS is *unchecked.* That will dedicate the NIC you chose to the switch. And any VMs you create and add virtual adapter to with that switch attached will use that NIC.

Any NIC *not* attached to a virtual switch can be used exclusively by the management OS. Thus the clean separation.
