Is it possible to use backup exec on a server with dual nics?
Posted on 2007-11-28
Environment is network one: 192.168.4.x. Network 2 is 192.168.5.x
Backup Server is located on the 192.1618.4.x network and is the storage location for a number of backup exec 10d jobs on the 4.x network.
I'd like to have a windows 2003 server, on the 5.x network backup to the backup exec server on the 4.x network. I can't change the IP addressing schemes on either of the machines, and the backup destination needs to remain in the 4.x network.
I was thinking about just installing another nic in the server (source) on the 5.x network and giving it a 4.x address...and connecting it to the other network.
Would this work...and whats your thoughts on how to get the backup exec job to run on the 5.x server but place its backup to disk files on the 4.x storage destination.
