Say, I've a linux server with 2 network ports. (CentOs)
Ive also 2 identical servers. The one a backup server.
Idea is to manage the backup server via the 2nd ethernet port and if its needed to simply plug the network cable in the live server into 1st ethernet port.
Is it a good idea / acceptable to have the following config for each server?
