That's what I expected.

The company I'm working for has a network dedicated to traffic between
servers. They'd like the replication uses that network rather than the one
used to authenticate users (of course this authentication network is also
used by others applications/services).

As I'm still waiting for a real test platform I have no real idea about
amount of bandwith consumed by replication, that's also why they asked for
moving this traffic elsewhere. I hope replication won't need too much
bandwith, which seems the case (I never saw a DC consuming more than
