I have a three node HSX Reference Architecture stack.

On one of the nodes the network card has failed. On this card one port is connected to the Production LAN and the other to the Storage. The node has two network cards configured so my node is still up.


I have ordered a new network card but my question is, do I need to do anything after I replace it or will it just be added back to the Bonds ?

Normally the hardware is replaced by the vendor technicians, for instance HPE. If same model of card is replaced and plugged in the same slot I would expect it to take the same device names (enpsf1, enpfs2 for instance) so the change will be transparent for the OS and for the network config.
