I want to set up a simple backup network between my two file servers using only a crossover cable and two additional NIC's.

Both servers (win2003 server) also acts as DC's and DNS/DHCP servers for all other PC's connected to the network through a switch.

I want to be able to backup data between the servers without disturbing the other PC's in the network.

How do I configure the additional NIC's to be able to do this? I have tried a lot, and have come this far:
- They need to have fixed IP's
- No gateway
- No DNS servers
- No registration in DNS
- The metric needs to be set manually

But it doesn't work.......
- Do I need to set the binding? How?
- Do I need to use netbeui for the backup network? How?
- How do I get one server to backup to a disk on the other server over the "backup network" while at the same time being able to see the other computers through the switch?

:confused: :confused:
