When setting up a cNFS cluster, should either a physical interface or virtual interface be used?
If you look at the information here:
It states that a virtual interface should be used, because fail over is faster and it will avoid the delay of bringing up the link on fail back.
However, I have seen recommendations to keep the link on a physical interface. Only during fail over is a virtual interface brought up. That said, I have not see many reasons for keeping it on a physical interface.

Re: cNFS interfaces: Physical or Virtual?2013-03-08T22:15:08ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Hi,
Its not a question of "should" - you can use either.
I prefer to use virtual because of the reasons mentioned in the link below - but both options will work.
