Can This be done???
Posted on 2004-09-22
I have two Windows 2003 servers. Server 1 is running SQL Server, Server2 is running our Accounting software. The two servers share an enormous amount of data with each other due to the proprietary software that the company is running. Because of the this, I would like to install a second gigabit network card in each server and connect them together using a crossover cable. My question are:
Is this Scenario even possible?
How can I tell the servers that any information that is sent or received between them should travel through the Gigabit card connected using a crossover cable and not the Network card connected to the network switch. They are passing information back and forth using an ODBC driver.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
