I had a question here.
Basically, we have two different networks. Each network has one Cisco 2960 layer 2 switch for each network in the same location. These are two individual networks. There is a link from each switch to a service provider router. The service provider has provided us two interfaces on their router, one for each network. The default gateway on each switch is the inside interface IP of the router. The service provider router does all the routing before sending it out WAN to our data center.
Attached is a quick drawing put together.
Now, we have a backup server connected to each switch for each network. In an attempt to reduce the number of backup servers, management has asked us to reduce to one backup server (for both networks) and use the other backup server as spare. My question is, how can we route between the two networks, for the sake of using single backup server. The users should still be on separate networks. Do we need to put a layer 3 device to perform the routing? Or can we add some kind of static routes on our layer 2 switch to the service provided router since it is doing all the routing? Can someone please comment?
