I know exactly what you're talking about komdet and we're working on that right now.

I know you can add another NIC for separation of CVM replication/Management traffic. I don't know how to force ABS to a specific path.

Basically, the idea is superb but how to force the ABS traffic to be run on the dedicated NIC requires the Nutanix engineer team consulted.
I think you can leverage and describe your idea to an opened up improvement suggest ticket to Nutanix engineer team. I think they will consider integrating this to be a new advanced ABS feature in future releases

In short, its not done yet. We launched the first part of this change in 5.5 (with the ability to segregate the backend CVM traffic). That's laying the framework for this feature. Release date for this has not been set yet.

If you've got access to the nutanix support portal, feel free to submit a ticket with priority "RFE" and reference internal ticket FEAT-5120, which is the feature request ID tracking this
