Re: Clufvy and private interconnects

I'm not sure why it is failing. In previous versions, when you used RFC reserved networks, the tool couldn't find a network suitable for VIPs since it assumed that all reserved networks were for private interconnects. Looks like you sort of have the opposite problem. I'm not sure the reason for this and there's no other notes on ML indicating why, so I'd file an SR on it. I expect that VIPCA should still run fine anyway.

I noticed that you have 2 NICs configured with separate IPs on each of the two networks. If you want to build some redundancy for the NICs on your servers, you need to investigate interface bonding. Simply putting two NICs on the same subnet with different IP addresses isn't sufficient to create a redundant NIC configuration. Instead, you'll need to bond the two physical interfaces together (with the bonding software driver) and then use a single IP address on the bonded pseudointerface (typically called bond0, bond1, etc). Search metalink for "linux ethernet bonding" and you'll find a few helpful notes.

My question would be:  what exactly is cluvfy looking for when it is scanning for the interconnects?    User equivalence checks out, we are using switches, and so on.
