2 network cards in server?
I have just installed a second network card in to our server so that I could connect our nas backup disk to it directly (checked I could do this) but did not seem to have any sucess in getting the NAS to be discovered on the network. Gave the new card a static address just like the server original (with a different IP of course!), is there anything I should be doing different?

What IP address and netmask does the new port on the server have, what IP address and netmask does the NAS have?

Is the server you've just installed that second card into a domain controller?
If so you're going to have some issues.

Yep its the DC, the second card is not connected at the moment to anything, and when its is if thats possible it will only be direct to the NAS. What issues and is this not a good idea then?

Tried cross over cable first but thats not the issue and checked with Iomega that the cable supplied was Ok to connect direct to the card and they said yes.

The card is not going to be connected to any outside network just the NAS

The card is not going to be connected to any outside network or internal only the NAS box which has no other connections. Its used puely for backup storage directly from the server, the document seems to say if its connected to an external network. Anyway I'll have to keep my eye on it and investigate further.

Mmm sounds to me like you are describing an iSCSI connection? Does the NAS support this ? If so then you need to make sure that the initiator software has been installed on the server !

I think even though it's only internal that your server will try and do dns lookups on both cards ip's round robin dns is the default.
