I am investigating sharing a NAS SMB share across two different subnets. The two subnets eventually connect over a firewall, however traffic on each subnet can directly connect to the NAS bypassing the firewall.
The NAS has the following IPs (they are also on VLANs)
nas-media. 3600 IN A 192.168.30.10 nas-media. 3600 IN A 192.168.10.9
If a client on
192.168.10.0/24 decides to map a drive to the
nas-media hostname, is it smart enough to pick the
192.168.10.9 address in lieu of
192.168.30.10 (suppose the client is Windows 7).
For anyone wondering why, the .30. network is for utility servers and .10. is a home network. The NAS is physically connected to a layer3 switch to which all servers are connected to as well as the firewall (dhcp, WAN, et al).
Right now all traffic from .10. will route to the firewall, and then bounce to the current
192.168.30.10 IP for the NAS. The port is a single 1Gbps ethernet connection and I am looking at this mainly for traffic management.
