hello all,
i need an advice about best practice to properly configure private network between two nodes

The two nodes are connected to a vSwitch provided by our datacenter with vlan id 3000 for exemple.

this vlan is only for Cluster network purpose, not for VM.

in this context, can i use only Linux Vlan (with raw device eno1), or should i create the Linux Vlan, and a Linux Bridge with Bridged port eno1.3000 ??

actually, one node have only the Linux Vlan, the other one have the Linux Bridge and it seems to work but it s not clean.

thanks in advance.

You can either work with vlan aware linux bridges, vlan unaware linux bridges bridged to a linux vlan interface or you can use a ovs bridge.
