Question regarding migration network best settings

Dec 8, 2022
Fine tuning my cluster and one of the things I want is to specify which of my NICs is used for the migration network. I've reviewed the documentation here

At the bottom it references the setup in the datacenter.cfg file that it refences the IP of the subnet network as a whole, ie:

migration: secure,network=

By setting it in the GUI however it sets that config file in my setup to say:

migration: network=,type=secure

This is obviously referencing this one specific node for all nodes in this config instead of just the subnet. Is it still correct this way or should I manually alter the config to match the top referenced code?
it shouldn't matter. What matters is the network that's associated with the CIDR and that's the same in both cases.
