New forest domain in vCenter


I have created forest domain in 2012R2

I want to use /8 addresses to start with

Using  as IP address, as subnet mask and as gateway

Have installed DNS and AD DS on server

We have 5 esxi hosts I have this machine on 1st one, there are a number of networks pointing back to the existing domain

I want to set physical nic to have internet address, I know Andrew mentioned adding vlan or physical nic to the host, is it possible to add a brand new physical nic for this, when i look into adding a nic, i see the same choices pointing back to existing domain

What is the best way to approach this?

I'm wary of doing it as per KB article looking to do this out of hours

Are there physical nics available or slots on the ESX host(s) ?  
Outage will be required to add a physical nic.

How many physical NIC's and vSwitches access the old network?
