Configuring NIC's for separate Roles - Windows 2009
Posted on 2011-10-04
I have a Win 2008 Server currently configured with two roles; File and Printer Services. Apparently discovering printers is impossible because the server is not in the same subnet.
What I would like to do is configure the other NIC for the same subnet the printers are on but not sure the impact on the file server. Just wondering if there is a way to point one nic to the file server and the other to the printer server.
Maybe this is contrary to what dual nics are for; teaming, bridging, clustering, etc.
Any comments will be appreciated.
