Hello ! I installed OMV 2.1.17 Stone Burner on a HP microserver gen 8 that have two network interfaces. After this step I cofigured the network connections and there is something I didn't like with them. I assigned a static ip for each network interface: eth0 has the ip 126.96.36.199 and eth1 has the ip 188.8.131.52 and I connected both to a unmanaged switch. My computer is connected too at this switch and the switch is connected further to a router.
This is what happens with my NAS:
-When the interface eth0 is connected to the switch and the interface eth1 is not connected, I can connect through eth0 to both ips as the eth1 has a cable connection (but it hasn't). The router sees eth0 with its ip 184.108.40.206 in the ARP list and not with the ip 220.127.116.11 .
-When the interface eth0 is not connected and the interface eth1 is connected (and has a static IP), I can't acces both network connections.
-When both network connections are physical connected to the switch, the router can't see none of them in the ARP list.
-When I let the router to assigne an ip to interface eth1 through DHCP and the eth0 has a static IP, the router sees both connexions in the ARP. If I disconnect eth0 the router can see eth1 in the ARP list (with its dynamic ip) and I have acces to my NAS (through eth1).
I wonder if this is the real way that OMV uses the dual network connection. I need both network connections to work independently of one another.
