force Backup traffic over backup VLAN

Question:

We have a dataprotector server wich is connected with
- NIC1: management VLAN
- NIC2: backup VLAN

Every other physical server is connected identically, i.e.
- NIC1: management VLAN
- NIC2: backup VLAN

What is the preferred method to route all backup traffic over the backup VLAN. Is there a way to force this in dataprotector?

Re: force Backup traffic over backup VLAN

You have to tell it where to go via the hosts files.

On the cell you would have to add all client entries names and secondary IP addresses.

Then on each client you would need to specify the cell manager and media servers names and secondary IP addresses.

We do this here and it works pretty well.

Re: force Backup traffic over backup VLAN

If you're just looking to have the backup job data traffic redirected, then simply import the tape drive server's NIC2 network name as a virtual host and then assign that NIC2 network name as the host of the tape drives when defining them rahter than the NIC1 network name. That's all you do.

Thanks,

Re: force Backup traffic over backup VLAN

Thx for the answers.

Both VLANs have different ranges. We're still in testing fase but ran into the problem that all backup traffic was going over the management VLAN.

Will try and post the results.

Re: force Backup traffic over backup VLAN

Scott,

Apparently you have answered this question a lot of times. Virtual Hosts is the way to go.

But it's still not clear to me.
Can you explain this setup once more? I'm looking for a good step by step manual for this since our setup will be very complex in the end.

See if the picture covers what you need.
