Managing IP addresses/FQDN of a storage node

About managing IP addresses/FQDN of a storage node

You can configure multiple addresses or fully qualified domain names (FQDN) that can be used to communicate with a storage node. While adding multiple IP addresses/FQDN, you specify the IP address, select the network type, and set the IP as primary or secondary address.

You can set the network type as LAN, WAN, or AUTO. If the Server IP address is set to AUTO, connections with time-to-live (TTL) 20 ms or higher are identified as WAN.

The primary IP address is the first address that is used to communicate with the storage node. Subsequent IP addresses (if any) are used if communication via the primary IP address fails. Thus before you begin, decide on the IP addresses that you want to set as primary.
