nfs - two nics same subnet
I'm not sure if the following setup causes problems:
All machines run on RHEL4 (2.6.9 kernel).
I have a disk pool with two NICs connected to a switch.
The two NICs got IPs in the same subnet (see below).
Then I got two machines (WN) with one NIC each also
connected to the switch. These machines, that live in
the same subnet as the disk pool, import
disk space from the disk pool via NFS:
First WN (192.168.1.21) via the disk pool interface (192.168.1.10)
Second WN (192.168.1.22) via the disk pool interface (192.168.1.11)
| Disk Pool |
| 10 11 | = XX
| Switch |
| 21 | | 22 | = XX
| WN | | WN |
The reason for this is to have two simultanious GBit connections
from the disk pool to the WNs.
Is there a routing problem, because of the the disk pool NICs
being in the same subnet?
Does it make a difference using TCP or UDP for the NFS exports?
Thanks and cheers,
