Creating a network bond
If you have more than one node, you must create a network bond on each appliance node after all of the nodes are added. Use the same slaves and bonding mode on each node on the appliance.
You create a network bond by using the Flex Appliance Shell. For information about accessing and using the Flex Appliance Shell, see the following topic:
To create a network bond
- Log in as the hostadmin user to the Flex Appliance Shell, and then type the following:
set network bond slaves=<slave name,slave name> bond_mode=<name of the bonding mode> bond_name=<name of the bond>
The slaves parameter is required. The bond mode and the bond name are optional. If you don't enter a bond name, "bondX", where X is the lowest number available, is the default name. If you don't enter a bond mode value, the default value is used.
The following bond modes are available:
