Isolated network on ESXi 6.5

Smh asked
Last Modified: 2017-04-23
hi all, I am seeking a best approach with what I am trying to do. I have ESXi 6.5 hosting multiple VMs and vCenter 6.5 managing multiple hosts. I would like to create a totally separate additional network (without destroying my current setup including the network management) for which I would like to use to host a DC and multiple VMs. As you can see from the attached image, my current infrastructure has vmk0/vswitch0 as a management network and vmk1/vswitch1 (VMkernel adaptors) for datastores on the top iSCSI.

To achieve what I am trying to do should I be using a virtual router or are their any other options? What sort of virtual router would you be using? If your could help or provide some links, it will be really great.

Thank you very much.
