Hi all, i'm reading conflicting information on the network setup for Xenserver. I have two servers with 4 network cards i'd like to have 2 bonded cards to carry VM storage traffic and 2 bonded cards to carry general network traffic and the management interface. The problem is that i've seen this below in the xencenter docs.
Note that a server with its management interface on a bond will not be permitted to join a pool. You will need to reconfigure the server's management interface and move it back on to a physical NIC before it can join a pool.
but i've also seen this as well...
Citrix recommends configuring management networks using a dedicated network interface or interfaces configured in a bond. The interface may be shared with VMs if desired; however, Citrix recommends separating VM, management, and storage traffic.
So the question is if I configure a xenserver to have 2 cards for storage and another bond with 2 cards for general LAN traffic and the management interface will this cause issues when I add a second xenserver to the pool as indicated in the first quote?
Anyone got a setup like this.
I'm going to give it a try anyway so i'll post back with how I get on :)
