Verifying network connections

You should confirm you can access the StorageGRID networks you are using from the appliance. To validate routing through network gateways, you should test connectivity between the StorageGRID Appliance Installer and IP addresses on different subnets.


  1. From the menu bar of the StorageGRID Appliance Installer, click Configure Networking > Ping Test.
    The Ping Test page appears.

  2. From the Network drop-down box, select the network you want to test: Grid, Admin, or Client.
  3. Enter the IPv4 address for a host on that network.
    For example, you might want to ping the gateway on the network or the primary Admin Node.
  4. Click Test Connectivity.
    If the network connection is valid, the "Ping test passed" message appears, with the ping command output listed.
