Hi there,

is there a way to put the proxmox backup on a seperate network (interface)? At the moment it seems that it's going through the same network as the management GUi - and in our case this is just 1GBit/s, while there are 10 GBit/s possibilities waiting for work. :)

Thanks and greets

Hi,
this depends on the routing, if your remote storage is shared on the 10GBit/s network, backups should use this route instead of the management network.
 
Hey Chris,

thanks for your quick reply!
Indeed the proxmox management interface is in the same subnet as the backup server. What do you suggest as an easy way to change the backup path? Configuring a second IP address at the backup server's interface so it's also part of a "10 GBit subnet"?

Yes, your NIC on the 10 GBit network will have its own IP, right? So your NFS/CIFS server should be configured to listen on the 10 GBit network and in PVE you will have to mount the storage using the corresponding IP.
