Currently we have all the backups going through LAN1 (PROD). We want to make separatation so that backups/restores use LAN2 (BCK LAN) when possible, as we have some clients/DBs that would still need to be backed up through LAN1 and due to hardware limitaions some are not possible to separate. We have installed separate switches for LAN2 and we have separate DNS. So now we have following 2 lets say domains:
We have one physical Primary (Master) server, and 2 Secondary (Media) servers that are virtual instances on Flex Appliance.
From what I understand, we will need to make following changes (not sure is that includes all):
Can you please let me know following:
If you have any good guides/references it would be appriciated
Appology for all the questions and thank you for the help.

from my experience, all comes to DNS resolving.
If a client is resolved by the master and media servers with the backup IP and vice versa, then the backup is working fine.
Some customers build a second DNS only for backup, some others use different names for the clients in the backup lan.
And of course, there is the hosts file you can play with.
