-> a node will send and receive in the same ethernet interface. You can
-> eth0 and eth1
-> as communication media. If one media goes down you will be notified
-> there is client running
-> or you will see error message in log.
I think I see the issue. You are correct. The nodes will send and recv
on eth0 and eth1 (and actually it's a bit more complicated than that,
they are on VLANS).
The issue is that if eth1 goes down, even though eth0 is up, I want the
switch from active to standby to happen over the known good link. This
protects me from the switch dying.
-> I only see two nodes. Am I missing something?
I was considering each interface a "node".
