  • Hyperscale Reference Architecture and VLAN tagging, directing network traffic
    Posted: 11-27-2019, 8:28 AM

    We're configuring a Hyperscale using reference architecure, not appliances.

    We'd like to use VLAN tagging (trunk port in Cisco paralance) on top of bond of two 10 Gb ports.

    This configuration was not an option when we were setting up the appliance (/opt/commvault/MediaAgent/setupsds), but we were successful in doing it manually in Red Hat.

    Ping tests all work fine between a client on a specific VLAN and the data protection IP addresses.

    I saw a page in the documentation, https://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11_sp16/article?p=106318_1.htm

    but this refers to the appliance and a particular GUI. I at least can't get a web page to display when using a browser to one of the HS nodes.

    I've fiddled around using data interface pairs, but this seems overly cumbersome, as well as I'm not convinced the backup traffic is actually using the correct interface. When doing some testing, it appears the backup traffic is using a separete 1 Gbps port we use for management. It's this address we have added as the media agent host in the CommCell.
