I have 2 servers that one is used for backups, and the others is a server that the files from our SAN get copied to for backups. I want to connect the 2 servers together using a crossover cable, but the server still have to be able to get out to the internet. Each server has 2 NICs.
What do I need to enable on the NIC properties that the crossover cable is plugged into so it will not conflict with the other NIC?
What else do I need to do?
They are PowerEdge 2900
Running Server 2012 R2 Datacenter
NICs are - Broadcom NetXtreme (The build in ones)
