I have a simple project I need to do and I thought I would just run it by you guys.  We need to ghost several PC's.  We are going to setup a private network for this project.  We have a ghost server on our company network we will be using.  If I install a second NIC with  private IP (something I make up like 10.10.10.1) and connect that to a dedicated switch, that shouldn't pose a problem to our companies network, right?  I ask because we have a security officer in our department and we need to make sure we don't open a vunerability.

Eh?...you may be wrong here...why? because first it depends on where are you connecting this Second NIC ? Is it a server or workstation ?

Please let us know.

Thanks

Does it matter if the OS is server or workstation?

I think what systmprog meant was that if this was a critical system server, then it might not be a good idea. If it is just a dedicated Ghost server, then there should be no problems at all

Am I correct in saying that traffic from the backbone will be segmented from the second NIC and vis versa?

Yes...according to this scenario..there is no problem at all. Please go ahead...

For your question: -
>>>Does it matter if the OS is server or workstation?

Why i asked you abou the server..because server runs so many component services...if you attach a new NIC and connect to a DMZ network that service will try to service the clients to network you connected...so it matters a lot when connected directly to a backbone but in your scenario it is safe to use.

Thanks
