Fixed port bond mode

Fixed port bond mode is the default configuration for the 10/25-GbE ports.

Fixed Port Bond Mode

Callout Which ports are bonded
C Ports 1 and 3 are bonded together for the Client Network, if this network is used.
G Ports 2 and 4 are bonded together for the Grid Network.
When using Fixed port bond mode, the ports can be bonded using active-backup mode or Link Aggregation Control Protocol mode (LACP 802.3ad).
Note: If you do not need redundant connections, you can use only one port for each network. However, be aware that an alarm will be raised in the Grid Manager after StorageGRID Webscale is installed, indicating that a cable is unplugged. You can safely acknowledge this alarm to clear it.
