Using Dedicated Backup or Replication Network

Product version: 6.1

Last modified: 06 July 2016


I have two separate networks: one for production workload and another one for backup/replication.

How can NAKIVO Backup & Replication be configured to use the dedicated backup or replication network?


To limit NAKIVO Backup & Replication traffic to the dedicated network, check the following:

  • Create a dedicated network that does not interfere with your production network.

  • Make sure that the NAKIVO Backup & Replication server and ESXi hosts are connected to the dedicated network.

Once NAKIVO Backup & Replication and the ESXi hosts are connected to the same dedicated network, NAKIVO Backup & Replication will start using this network automatically.
