Network connectivity

You might see issues with network connectivity for StorageGRID Webscale grid nodes hosted on Linux VMs.

Promiscuous mode

If you are deploying StorageGRID Webscale nodes on Linux VMs and you observe that the node containers are unable to communicate over the network even though the host networking is working, verify that promiscuous mode is enabled in the hypervisor. Promiscuous mode is disabled by default for OpenStack and VMware hypervisors.
Note: This information only applies to containers deployed on Linux virtual nodes; VMware and OpenStack virtual machine nodes do not require promiscuous mode.
