I need to set up a virtual network to simulate our company's physical network for testing, etc. The machines will include DC, Exchange, Web, and MSSQL servers as well as workstations. I need the machines on the virtual network to be isolated from the company subnet that the visualization host is attached to, but at the same time to have internet access. Having read about the virtual network flavors, external, internal, and private, it occurs to me that to accomplish this I need to put the host itself on a separate physical subnet and then configure an external private network in Hyper-V. Before going ahead, I would appreciate an expert opinion on whether it is possible to leave the host on our company subnet and still have the machines in the virtual network both a) isolated from the physical subnet the host is attached to, and b) connected to the external internet.
