remap of lan ports

i have 4 new RX6600 and the servers have the dual port nic plus 2 additional single nics my problem is can the cards be remaped as with solaris as at the moment the order is lan 1,2,3,0 i would like to remap to something more logical I.E. 0,1,2,3.
in all my time doing HP-UX i have never had this issue before so is a remap possible and if so how.
regards
Andrew

Re: remap of lan ports

Andrew,

You can use ioinit to re-assign instance numbers:

Create a file /tmp/ioinit with the details:

0/0/0/1/0/6/0 lan 1

run ioinit -f /tmp/ioinit -r

The above will change the instance number of the lan port at 0/0/0/1/0/6/0 to 1 (lan1) and then reboot the system.

regards,

Richard
