Muthu and Arun; In the Mel's example above,
lan2, lan3 and lan4 are on the same hardware path.

could you please explain the same ?

Re: number of physical network cards on the hpux server

Shiv, what Mel specified is a Quad port card which contains 4 NICs together in one card and it can be assigned same HW path. It is used for fail over and load balancing. Its different from 4 individual NICs.

Re: number of physical network cards on the hpux server

hi,

i normally use attached script which also gives me information on the speed.

e.g.
# ./lan-speed.sh
Card at PPA 0 - IP Address: 172.0.28.1 - Config = 100 Full-Duplex AUTONEG
Card at PPA 1 - IP Address: 192.168.14.1 - Config = 100 Full-Duplex AUTONEG
Card at PPA 2 - IP Address: 10.10.1.11 - = 1000 Full-Duplex. = On.
#

hope this helps too!

kind regards

Re: number of physical network cards on the hpux server

HW paths are never "assigned" per se. Each bit of HW in the system has a specific path which reaches it. Each I/O slot has a specific HW path.

The HW path will include "path" information about internal stuff leading ot the PCI(X) slot, then PCI addressing information - PCI address and functional address.
