proxmox linstor networking question


Jun 4, 2022

i am interested on trying out linstor.
I have read the guides and all seem pretty straight forward.
However i have some questions regarding the network configuration.

I plan to install it on a 3 node cluster.
The networking of the server is the following :

2 x 1GBs network connections with one setup as the proxmox default bridge
2 x 40GBs network connections where each one goes to a seperate 40 switch (inherited the topology from a former vmware iscsi cluster with multipath).

what would be the most optimal setup ? create a network bridge ? create a Linux bonding interface ?
I know i could just pick an interface on the same 40gb switch for all the server and get over it. But is there a way to take advantage of both switches ?

thank you in advance
