Network settings details from the per-node UI

You can change the storage node network settings to give the node a new set of network attributes.

You can see the network settings for a storage node on the Network Settings page when you log in to the node (https://<node IP>:442/hcc/node/network-settings). You can select either Bond1G (management) or Bond10G (storage) settings. The following list describes the settings that you can modify when a storage node is in Available, Pending, or Active state:

Note: If you are running a SolidFire Enterprise SDS cluster, most networking settings in the per-node UI cannot be modified after node deployment.
