Single Node - 2 NICs - 2 Networks

I am setting up a 3 node cluster and am looking to setup a separate network for storage. I have 2 nics on this motherboard.

The first was setup during the debian install. Then I set the second NIC to the other subnet, but I can't ping it. It says it's active but I'm not so sure. These are all running through a ubiquiti switch. I can confirm the VLAN works fine as other devices on that VLAN come up.

Any tips or advice welcome.

# the PVE managed interfaces into external files!

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug enp2s0

auto enp2s0
iface enp2s0 inet static
    netmask  24
# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed

auto eno1
iface eno1 inet static
    netmask  24
Well I am not sure why I can't ping the interfaces and could ping the one I switched to the same VLAN up in my living room to a device, but the switch shows that the storage data is moving over the links across the 3 nodes so that's good. Maybe there's a firewall on the device I dont know about? Not really sure.
