VLAN Configuration and teaming on two Redhat clustered nodes

Hello

We want to configure teaming of 2 NICs and assign it to specific vlan id. All server are connected to network blade switch which is also connected to a cisco switch already configured as trunk port and port channel is enabled to allow all vlans. We could not do the configuration by vlan port-based due to limited number of the uplinks to the cisco switch.

My questions:

1. Can we follow up this article http://www.mysidenotes.com/2008/01/30/vlan-configuration-on-fedora-core-red-hat-centos/ or suggest any method can do the same.

2. Are you recommending this configuration to be done on clustered nodes running in production environment?

OS : Redhat Linux 5.7 64x
4  NICs ( one is used for heartbeat network BTW the two nodes )

Thanks
Ahmed,

ok , first you need install package vconfig

- yum -y install vconfig
- edit the file /etc/sysconfig/network and add: VLAN=yes

Assuming that is used the interface eth1 to access to the local network, to edit the configuration file:

vim /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1

To remove all the parameters of network, and to only leave the following thing:

DEVICE=eth1
TYPE=Ethernet
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
HWADDR=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
NM_CONTROLED=no

To restart the service of network in order that it applies the change and so that loading of automatic way the module 8021q of the nucleus of Linux

service network restart

They can be created temporary way (they will be lost after to reinitiate the system) the devices of VLAN of the following way:

vconfig add eth1 2
vconfig add eth1 3
vconfig add eth1 4
ifconfig eth1.2 172.16.0.65 netmask 255.255.255.192
ifconfig eth1.3 172.16.0.129 netmask 255.255.255.192
ifconfig eth1.4 172.16.0.193 netmask 255.255.255.192

test and tries :)
