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.

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.

Then you need a second physical NIC in the server. If you dont allow routing from VLAN1 to VLAN2 then the only way on a single physical server  is 2 nics.
