    Hey Guys,

    Im trying to configure my eth1 with a private IP and use this to backup the /home contents. The cPanel server and the CentOS server are both VMs in the same ESXi host.

    Everything time I bring eth1 cPanel / WHM stops loading, although the site and emails carry working, what is the proper way of adding the eth1.

    Did you also configed 2 virtual netwerk adapters in de VM with startup with boot on?

    With ssh and the command ifconfig can you see what is configed. I'm assuming that eth0 is your external IP.
    You could try form the commandline: ifconfig eth1 192.168.X.X netmask 255.255.255.X up (do this on both machines.)

    But why don't you use the ftp backup function in cPanel to the CentOS server?

    I have configured to virtual network adapters in ESXi, the backup server is reachable from the windows VM using the eth1 with no issues.

    eth0 is indeed my external connection, I could do use the ftp backup function over eth0 but then I would need to use another public IP on the backup server but I would rather not waste the IP as Ive only got 3, 2 for the NS and 1 for cPanel, I have another on the windows VM as well.

    cpanel/whm should still resolve if you just configured eth1 via ifcfg-eth1 within /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. Can you post the output of the routing table?
