Veeam 9 Replica Help Needed

I'm planing to create replicas from host A to host B and vise versa and I was wondering to use the 2NIC port on these 2 PowerEdge servers for replica purposes only, can some help me here on the configuration? I'm running ESXi 5.5 on both host and I have enabled the 2nd NIC on both hosts, they are both on a separate vswitch1 and I've connected a cat6 cable from host A to host B directly on the 2nd NIC port to port. I have my Veeam image running on host A and I'm trying to avoid the replica data traffic to hit the main production switch which is part of the main vswitch0, any ideas?

Use a different IP Address range from the normal range, and use a DNS name specific for this replica hostname.

You will need to configure this 2nic as a management network with a different IP Address.

e.g.

HostA - 192.168.1.1
HostAreplica 10.10.1.0

and use HostAreplica in your Veeam configuration.

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for getting back, how can I add the management card on vswitch1, it shows on vswitch0 but I could not move or add it to the vswitch1? Thank you.

select properties of the vSwitch, and network adaptors, and this allows you to add and remove physical nics on the host.

also if you select the VMKernel interface you have created, you can select Management Network as an option.
