Fixing missing network interface errors

If the host network is not configured correctly or a name is misspelled, an error occurs when StorageGRID Webscale checks the mapping specified in the /etc/storagegrid/nodes/<node-name>.conf file.

You might see an error or warning matching this pattern:

Checking configuration file /etc/storagegrid/nodes/<node-name>.conf for node <node-name>...
ERROR: <node-name>: <SOME>_NETWORK_TARGET = <host-interface-name>
       <node-name>: Interface '<host-interface-name>' does not exist

This error means that the /etc/storagegrid/nodes/<node-name>.conf file maps the StorageGRID <SOME> network to the host interface named <host-interface-name>, but there is no interface with that name on the current host.

If you receive this error, verify that you completed the steps in “Deploying new Linux hosts.” Use the same names for all host interfaces as were used on the original host.

If you are unable to name the host interfaces to match the node configuration file, you can edit the node configuration file and change the value of <SOME>_NETWORK_TARGET to match an existing host interface. Make sure the interface provides access to the appropriate physical network port or VLAN.
