Linux: Network connectivity issues

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

Promiscuous mode

If you are deploying StorageGRID nodes on Linux hosts 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 VMware hypervisors.
Note: This information only applies to containers deployed on Linux hosts; VMware virtual machine nodes do not require promiscuous mode.
