How-to guide for home cluster networking
« on: February 04, 2014, 11:24:04 AM »
Two i7 hosts
One Xeon NAS

I want HA from the i7 hosts with both of them connecting to storage on the NAS
i7 nodes will have 5 total Gigabit ports (1 onboard and 4 via (2) NL360T)

Connecting to Dell Powerconnect 5224.

I don't know how and what to connect together for HA.  I can get it communicating with the NAS, I'm just not sure what the best config is for the 5 nics. 

Any advice, even if it's just a link to a page that is actually close to my config, is appreciated.

This is a very good article that I reference quite a bit when I'm laying out my networking, even in my production environments, and it has setups and recommendations, taking storage into account for several NIC layouts:
