I am setting up a backup solution for my client...
what I am would like to do is set up my backup server on a different subnet mask than the that of my normal business traffic so that I can track the the network utilization used during the backup process since the backup server will be touching several servers/workstations.
1. is this possible
2. can you have 2 differnet subnet masks on the same system
3. if yes to 1 & 2, can I still use the same ip adressing scheme on the backup subnet
the environment is MS with 2003 servers running ads and xp workstations. the network layout is very flat with all systems home run'd to the same switch.
