PXE boot

Y

N

If present, the PXE boot network is used for PXE booting of new hosts (instead of using the internal management network), and must be untagged. It is limited to IPv4, because the StarlingX installer does not support IPv6 UEFI booting.

Internal Management

Y

Y

By default (when PXE boot network is not present), internal management is used for PXE booting of new hosts. It must be untagged and it must be IPv4. If, for deployment reasons, the internal management network needs to be on a VLAN-tagged network, or if it needs to be IPv6, you can configure the optional untagged PXE boot network for PXE booting of new hosts using IPv4.

OAM

The OAM network supports IPv4 or IPv6 addressing. For more information, see OAM Network Planning.
