Re: APA port failover test on remote server

Never mind. Here is how you can test failover without pulling a cable.

 

glance -l

 

Observe which interface of the APA is being talked across (Packet Rate In).

 

lanadmin -X -d 3 900    <-- Where "3" is lan3 of the bonded APA

 

glance again to ensure traffic has been routed to other NIC of APA

 

lanadmin -X -a 3 900    <-- Add back in the interface.

 

glance again to ensure traffic is still on the other interface.

 

Double-check /etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaportconf that the lower-number (higher priority) is given to the lan NIC you want the primary traffic across. -- I had to use 0, above, for lan0 since the priorities are reversed for some reason. 0 being a lower priority than 1. ???

 

 

HP_APAPORT_INTERFACE_NAME[0]=lan3

HP_APAPORT_GROUP_CAPABILITY[0]=900

HP_APAPORT_PRIORITY[0]=0

HP_APAPORT_CONFIG_MODE[0]=MANUAL

 

HP_APAPORT_INTERFACE_NAME[1]=lan0

HP_APAPORT_GROUP_CAPABILITY[1]=900

HP_APAPORT_PRIORITY[1]=1

HP_APAPORT_CONFIG_MODE[1]=MANUAL
