Separating Management Network

I would like to separate the Management Network from the VM Network on my ESXi hosts. The idea is that the hosts can only be managed from clients connected on the separated Management Network.

The problem is that when I place vCSA onto the Management Network, it is no longer able to communicate to my Domain Controllers (on the VM Network), and I will lose Active Directory integration. Furthermore, I cannot time synchronize my ESXi hosts, as the Management Network is isolated from any NTP servers.

How do I resolve the issue of separating the Management Network, whilst still ensuring time synchronization, and communication of vCSA with the Domain Controllers?

Thanks in advance,
