So I'm now putting in a seperate mini networks for server backups to the san.
Each server has a second nic.
All the second nic's will be connected to an 1800-24G in the server room.
The 1800-24G will be connected via fibre to the openfiler san.
The openfiler san uses a media converter to go from fibre to gigabit copper.
All of our machines currentlly use a 10.x.x.x style ip address.
What range should I pick for this seperate backup network?
At the moment backups are done using backupassist and ntbackup but I'm looking at something like R1Softs CDP solution.
You can use what ever range you like as long as it is a private address.
