How to make Backup job use private network

How to make Backup job use private network

How to make Backup job use private network

Our Media Agent and client servers are connected to two networks Production and Private. How should I configure a client backup job to use the private network.

The client properties are currently set to host names (dns names of the media agent and client). Also the data interface pairs are the production IP addresses.

Do I change the Data interface pair to use the private 192.168* IP addresses for Media agent and client ?
And will this redirect the backup through the private network instead of the production.

appreciate any advice.

Simpana will always use the first address in the binding order

Just change the Data Interface Pairs to use the private network between client and MA (you shouldn't need them for the production network unless that address isn't first in the binding order)

thanks I'll change the Data Interface Pairs to Private Network IP's and see how it goes.

I wasn't sure if it would be an issue since Commserve will not be able to resolve the DNS name of the client to this private IP address.
