Hello there,

For the clieint network, can be any vlan (other than the cvm vlan), just recommend to get your clients routed with the fewest hops possible.

For the storage network, its recommended to put this on the same vlan as the cvms in order to avoid network bottlenecks.

Storage Subnet will be in the range of CVM VLAN where as Client subnet could be your server/ client vlan to access the SMB / NFS Share.

Note:  You cann’t access the share if you are on same VLAN of Storage.
