APA Warning in rc.log

I have APA configured, and apears to be running but I get the following error in the rc.log.
WARNING: IP address(es) configured on the lan interface of the primary
port 0 in the failover-group lan900, but the failover-group is
declared without the STATIONARY_IP field.

I want to resolve whatever is wrong.

Any help would appreciated.

sorry /etc/lanmon is a directory . The most important file I need is

/etc/lanmon/lanconfig.ascii

# In Proactive Failover, the active port of a fail-over group **
# is the port with the minimum normalized port cost. This means **
# a fail-over group will change its active port to a ready port **
# having a lower normalized port cost, even when the current **
# active port remains up. You must use cost-based fail-over **
# groups in order to get the Proactive Failover behavior. **
# **
# To define a cost-based fail-over group, all the ports in the **
# fail-over group must have a cost defined. Cost has a valid **
# range of between 1 and 100, inclusive. The value must be **
# preceded by a colon (:) character. **
# **
# If one of the ports in a fail-over group does not have a cost **
# defined, the fail-over group is invalid. **
# **
# If all ports in a fail-over group have no cost defined, the **
# default failover behavior is used. The available port with **
# the highest priority becomes the active port. **
# **
# By default, the lanqueryconf -s command creates only **
# priority-based fail-over groups. **
# **
# Example with cost defined: **
# FAILOVER_GROUP lan903 **
# STATIONARY_IP 195.55.55.55 **
# # Pri/Stdby I/f Pri Cost **
# PRIMARY lan900 7 : 1 **
# STANDBY lan901 6 : 2 **

Re: APA Warning in rc.log

1) Verify that the configuration in /etc/lanmon/lanconfig.ascii is still valid by using the lancheckconf command

2) Create the failover groups specified in the configuration file by using the lanapplyconf command.

This command creates the specified failover groups.

Check the failover groups by using the nwmgr -S apa and netstat -in commands.

A reboot will restart the failover group as long as the /etc/lanmon/lanconfig.ascii file is intact.



Good Luck
