well, there should be no impact on cluster… Are you going to use the same NICS for the 10G connection? Or do you plan to use other nics as well?

Yes we are planning to use the same nics (vlan) for the switch side.

Overall with the same nics…

  • disabling the virtual switch (maybe not necessary, because you are not changing any bond mode.)
  • enable maintenance mode on host and cvm
  • perform necessary changes on network and check connectivity on host and cvm
  • disable maintenance mode on cvm and check cluster
  • disable maintenance mode on host.
  • repeat last 4 steps for 2 other hosts.
  • recreate the virtual switch.

If you are going to use other nics, you probably have to change the bond mode for the virtual switch.

 Hi BartDonders,


Thanks for the replay

If i use other nics means need to create two bonds right..?

Example: 10 gig for management traffic (Host and CVM)---( Bro-up-Bond Mode)

                 1gig for guest vm traffic (Vms)--(Br1-up-BondMode)

is it correct..?
