Virtual network adapter without hyperv

Hi every one,

Juste a simple question, i want to creat a private network  on one server in my domain. And this private network should work first, with virtual network adapter(s) and then i'll trunk the adapter.
I just notice that hyperv role can do this with the hyperv manager (add virtuel adapter working with the protocol hyperv on the physical adapter).

Can we creat virtual network adapter without the hyperv role installed on windows server 2008 r2?

Maybe my plan here it's a little confuse, ask if you doubt about my plan.

Connect the virtual network to What? As its a server without Hyper-V how can it have a VIRTUAL network? It has nothing to "Virtually" connect to.

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

Useless question, i still not have understood my real problem on my server.
Forget about Virtual Machine on HYPERV.
I just wanna creat 2  virtual network adapters. Not possible?
But how can you have virtual adapters if you have no virtual network? What are they connecting to, you have not answered that yet.  You can't just have a "Virtual adapter" on one machine and another "Virtual adapter" on another machine and expect them to talk to each other.

You need to explain what you want to achieve before it can be answered.
Ok, so i have two VLAN, for example VLAN 1 and VLAN 2.  And i have one server. This server can't communicate in same time with the VLAN1 and 2. So the solution is : get 2 physical network adapters or 1 physical and make 2 virtual network adapters on the server with the physical one.
I just want to creat on this server, 2 virtual adapters linked to the physical network adapter (as Hyperv protocol work when you want to creat virtual network adapter).

Maybe i'm wrong but nevermind, i think i will delete the post. I don't know how to explain it better.

But thanks for your attention.
Can VLAN 1 and VLAN 2 not talk to each other? Is there a reason why not?
No we want to protect vlan 1 and vlan 2. We wont communication between VLAN 1 and 2.

How to configure it? Do you have a link, i only found many links about windows server 2012, not 2008.

Ok so with hyperv, i was totally wrong... Thank you.
Ok did it! I have now two NICS with my broadcom adapter.
