Subject Re: Add Storage Network

My guess is that you're right. I haven't seen anything that ties the
'physical network' to a specific NIC, thus if you register the traffic type
it should work so long as the hosts are able to route to that subnet on
*any* NIC. I'm not sure what hypervisor you're using, but for KVM at least,
you've also got to think about the bridge that SSVMs will want to attach
to. This is determined by bridge name (traffic label), and I believe if it
is set up in advance on the hosts it won't try to bridge to the primary
