Hi Niels,

There are probably multiple ways to solve that. For example you have
multiple interfaces (and eth0 -> eth3 are now in the same vlan, but only
eth0 is configured )
So you can for example use another subnet not conflicting with the (nor also alocated for remote VMs), but I
don't know how you'll test the virtual ip : I guess from another
provisioned node (like a nfs client).
I've reserved the following range for Gluster : -> (and documented it on the wiki page)

Does that work for you ?
