Concerning deploying the node of Hyperscale X Reference Architecture, is it possible to confgure Network Bonding for DPN and SPN to define multiple VLAN-tagged interfaces on a single 802.3ad trunk? Also, is it possible to use NetworkManager/nmtui?
Thank you very much!

At this time VLAN configuration on a bond for HSX requires manual configuration via the CLI. Full support for this is being added to the web installer in an upcoming release, but you can follow the steps below to add tagged VLAN interfaces until it is available.
- Deploy the HSX Storage Pool normally, using one of the standard network options (Redundant or Basic connections). See Deploying the Nodes With HyperScale X Reference Architecture for details
- Whenever your making network changes on the HyperScale X nodes, the cluster should be shutdown to avoid any potential cluster or data access issues. Follow the steps outlined here to shutdown the cluster: Stopping and Starting the HyperScale X Reference Architecture Cluster
- On each node configure the tagged vlan interfaces using the steps outlined in “Procedure 11.4. Configuring the VLAN on the Server “: Configuring a VLAN over a bond
- Verify connectivity on each interface on each node
- Re-start the cluster.
