Nutanix AHV cluster with default management in eth0 and eth1(LACP), could Nutanix AHV cluster create second management interface in another network port and another subnet?



Best regards

Ahh so with webbrowser management you don't mean Prism? But some other application? 


Create a new virtual switch in Prism Element (Settings → Network Configuration → Virtual Switch → + Create VS). Make sure you add the unused interface (eth2 in your case) to the virtual switch and complete the wizard. 

When the new virtual switch is created attach a network to it: (Settings → Network Configuration → Subnets → + Create Subnet). Make sure you choose the new virtual switch and vlan attached to it. 


Update: If you mean extra ip address on different interfaces only for Prism then that is not possible.  You can, however, separate backplane traffic (intra cluster traffic) on different interfaces though.
