VCL was created from the beginning with the assumption that there would be two
NICs in each machine. One to be used for pushing images to compute nodes and
for managing the compute nodes. The other for allowing public access to the
compute nodes from the end user. The management node doesn't absolutely have
to have a public IP address, but it makes administration of it much easier if
it does have one.
We do hope to get away from requiring the two NICs in the not too distant
I hope that helps clear things up. I can clarify further if needed.
