My "server1" Windows 2012 R2 has two NICs, with two static IPs, and

When ping  "server1" from a client on the 192.168.20.x it replies with the IP and says it cannot find it

How can I get "server1" to reply as instead ?

Why is the server on two different subnets? Rather than do that, you should control the routing between the networks. That would simplify things a bit.

One NIC is on the internal network, the other NIC is attached to the SAN

do you need DNS name resolution on both IPs? if not then, you can delete the DNS entry for from DNS and uncheck "Register this connection's addresses in DNS" from that NIC>IP>Advanced>DNS>second option from the bottom.

If you are using one machine to access the server, you can put Server1 in your local HOSTS file. This might be simpler for you to manage
