ESXi Lab - Networking Help

Hi guys, I'm looking for a little help regarding the networking on my Esxi lab.

I have 2 identical HP Gen8 boxes, running ESXi 5.5. Both have dual NIC's and are all connected to the same switch. (This switch is the one I use for all my other devices around the house)

 

At present, my setup is as follows:

Home router: 192.168.0.1

ESXi Host 1: 192.168.0.120

ESXi Host 2: 192.168.0.130

 

vSwitch0 > vmnic0 (external network 192.168.0.0/24)

vSwitch1 > vmnic1 (internal network 10.0.0.0/24)

 

This means I can access the hosts via web client/thick client from my desktop machine.

 

Both hosts are configured with a vSwitch0 and vSwitch1 which maps to physical adapters vmnic0 and vmnic1 respectively. vSwitch1 allow the VM's to be on their own 'private' network and are on the 10.0.0.0/24 subnet.  They are also contactable across both hosts.

 

I am planning on standing up a Server 2k12 VM and presenting the storage as an iSCSI datastore.   The question I have is what do I need to do from a networking perspective on both the VM and the hosts, in order for me to get this working?

 

I hope that makes sense!
