it depends on the server roles and the their applicable configurations. for example, if the server is an IIS server, make sure the web services are only listening on NIC1 not NIC2. this can be done by corresponding IIS settings.

also ensure the management LAN is only accessible to assigned management console and no external networks (such as internet) have access to the management LAN.

Where you have two subnets all devices on the 10.10.23.0/24 network segment will use the 10.10.23.45 NIC and all devices on the 192.168.55.0/24 network segment will use the 192.168.55.30 NIC, by default, regardless of the type of traffic.  

This assumes you have not multi-homed all machines.  If so, you cannot restrict or route by services such as management.

Only assign a gateway to one NIC, and make sure DNS is bound only to one NIC in the DNS management console.

shall i use persist route in the OS so that the management NIC can carry managment traffic.

The subnet will automatically determine the routing in your case.  You can define routing by IP addresses but not by services, meaning you cannot force routing based on management services alone.
