Move Lan Card to other slot.

Hello,

I have to move two lan card that are in APA mode from rx8640 slot 5 and 6 (Chassis 0) to the slot 1 and 2 (Chassis 0).

I will lose the LAN access to the server? i jus will have MP access?

If this happens maybe the best it's to put two lan cards on slot 1 and 2 and don't take out the slot 5 and 6. Reconfigure the netconf and do a net start net stop and see if it works. I think that i will just have to change the name of the lan on the netconf.

Regards,

Marcio

Hi,

You need downtime to do this activity. There is no change needed on netconf file rather you will have to modify the /etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaconf and /etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaportconf files with new ppa numbers and lan devices from slot 1 and 2.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Shalom,

I suggest you read the server documentation on http://docs.hp.com for the rx8640 server.

Just because the card will fit in the slot does not mean it will work.

This can not be done without powering down the server.
