VLAN setup on virtual servers

Specs: WIn7, 4GB
Hi, I am not too familiar virtualization, but I have a situation here:
My company has a Dell chasis blade module servers and all connected to VLAN 10 network via physical NICs. Now one of blade servers run Hyper-V would like to build VM, the new VM will connect different VLAN via virtual NIC, is it possible? Can someone provide more info? It was limited resources when I google it.

Does your blade server have a built in switch (physical) or do you have a virtual switch installed with the VM software?

If the blade has a built in switch and the switch is VLAN capable, or you have a virtual switch installed with your VM software and it's VLAN capable, then the answer is yes.

It matters not how straight the gate,

Yes, it has built-in switch and VLAN capable. I just wonder how one VLAN is configured on physical switch port and at the same time assign another VLAN ID tagged on VM?

I may need to get basic concept of virtualization running VLAN environment.

concept is no different than working with vlans. VM or not doesn't matter. you mention putting it on a different vlan but there is no mention of why or what else in on this vlan.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
