Managing networking

Because the topology of your StorageGRID Webscale system is that of a group of interconnected servers, over time as your system changes and grows you may be required to perform various updates to the system's networking.

You can change the configuration of the Grid, Client, or Admin Networks, or you can add new Client and Admin Networks. You can also update external NTP source IP addresses and DNS IP addresses at any time.
Note: To use the Grid Network editor to modify or add a network for a grid node, see the Recovery and Maintenance Guide. For more information about network topology, see the Grid Primer.

Grid Network

Required. The Grid Network is the communication link between grid nodes. All hosts on the Grid Network must be able to talk to all other hosts. This network is used for all internal StorageGRID Webscale system communications.

Admin Network

Optional. The Admin Network allows for restricted access to the StorageGRID Webscale system for maintenance and administration.

Client Network

Optional. The Client Network can communicate with any subnet reachable through the local gateway.
