So how do you force cluster comms to a private network in cluster.conf
if the the hostnames are still the main network names?

I use three interfaces;

eth0 = private back-channel network w/ fence devices. Hostnames (uname -n) resolve to this interface's IP (thus being ring 0)

eth1 = private storage channel. Entries in /etc/hosts with ".sn" suffix resolve to this interface's IP address. This is used with <altname...>, thus, is ring 1

eth2 = Internet facing network. During setup, these have hostnames in /etc/hosts with ".ifn" suffix resolving to IP addresses on the internet polluted network and have nothing cluster related on them.

I suppose also as I've never seen any reference to ring numbers in
cluster.conf itself.

<name ...> = ring 0
<altname ...> = ring 1



Hope that helps. :)
