Thank you for the suggestions - I'll give this a try with the switch
configuration.  We've got other proxmox clusters with several servers in
them we just hadn't tried the OVS setup yet.  Once these two nodes are
setup I plan to rebuild an existing cluster and add it with these two new
ones so I won't be leaving it as a two node setup for long.  Thanks for the
