i have 3 identical servers with integrated dual 10g sfp+ eth and dual 1g eth
[Supermicro X10SDV-2C-TP8F]
- the 1g nics are connected to redundant switches (frontend)
- the 10g nics are connected direct (backend ceph)
I tryed the configuration, shown in the video, but after restarting the nodes the network is broken
Just doing the steps [01:30 - 02:35], bonding only the 2 10g nics and restart the node results to the same problem.
And even just setting up a static ip on one 10g nic cuts back all others nics on that server.
As a result no incomming or outgoing connections on any nic are possible.
Installation with the 5.2.1 iso and successfully updated via apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
I found out, that the ixgbe driver [5.1.0-k] is a little older than the igb [] version, but i'm not experienced enough to compile it into the kernel. (error: code model kernel does not support PIC mode)
Using ’ixgbe allow_unsupported_sfp=1’ or ’ixgbe allow_unsupported_sfp=1,1’ doesn't fix the problem, too.
