On the primary network, the sqlserver is being replicated to another server, while it's easy to configure the primary and secondary server.
How do you configure the secondary to communicate with the primary server on a class C network to receive updates from sqlserver and communicate with the WAN at the same time?

You go to the network interfaces window and configure for yout servers the NIC corresponding to the SQL communication with the top priority (you can change the order pressing the alt key and opening the advance configuration from the menu).

Additionally, remove the default gateway on the nic that does not connect to the internet (provably the intercommunication noc). If required, add manual routes for reaching any network that you were reaching through the default gateway.

Hi Guys,
Currently, I have one server room, we are going to install a second server room at the back of a large building. The main reason for this is, in the event of a fire, we will have a copy of the sql server so we can resume business. all the office pc (2 dozen) will be physically uplugged from the primary network into secondary network.

Since the two database servers will be connected via fiber optics approx 300 feet away, should 1 use a failover DHCP or a seperate DHCP?

You're help is greatly appreciated.
