- Using another Physical NIC Method (applies when External networking is configured).
- Using Hyper-V Virtual Switch and VLAN Tagging Method.
And the scenario looks like below:

Over the past two years, Simple-Talk has published articles on a variety of SysAdmin topics, from Exchange to Virtualization, and including everything from Powershell to Unified Messaging. They have brought the best of these articles together to form The SysAdmin Handbook. With over fifty articles packed into this book, it will be an essential reference for any Systems Administrator, whether you have years of experience or are just starting out.
