vmware and Iscsi San

Hi All -

I have a vmware box that I have connected to an iscsi san. I am using the vmware iscsci initiator to connect to the LUN.

I want to take the iscsi connection and put it on its own switch - But my questions is how do I do this within vmware? is it possible to assign a nic to the iscsci connection?
