bond1 eth1, eth5 1009 untagged iSCSI
bond2 eth2,eth3,eth6,eth7 1006,1007,1008 tagged Mgt, OpenStack, xCAT

Public Interface Notes

In an ideal scenario, the head node has public access failover capability, via a bonded active/active or active/passive interface. In that scenario, the provider has two cables providing public-facing connectivity. One runs to the head node, and the other runs to the SSG5. For example:

  • Go to eth0 on head node
  • Goes to 0/0 on SSG5
    • Go to port 48 on mgt switch (BNT8052)
    • Go from port 47 on mgt switch back to eth4 on head node
