2.2. TCP/IP Network

All GFS nodes must be connected to a TCP/IP network. Network communication is critical to the operation of the GFS cluster, specifically to the clustering and locking subsystems. For optimal performance and security, it is recommended that a private, dedicated, switched network be used for GFS. GFS subsystems do not use dual-network interfaces for failover purposes.
