Windows Cluster (File Server) - Dedicated Backup NIC
Most of our servers have a dedicated backup NIC on them that is used for backups using Backup Exec 2012. We assign IPs to the backup NICs and make any local host entry edits needed to make the server and backup exec communicate.
I now need to implement this with a clustered File Server (Server 2008 R2). The Virtual Server for the File Server Service has a virtual IP of 10.10.10.x but the backup subnet is on 10.10.20.x. I have the individual node NICs setup and working on the backup network and I can ping the backup exec server, so if I back up resources by pointing to an individual server it works using the backup subnet. How can I make it so I can use a virtual IP in case of a failover? I don't want to point the backups to any specific node, so I'm looking to find out how to add an IP from the backup subnet to the File Server Instance.
Any help is really appreciated, Thanks.
