BACKUP network Interface card

Dear Experts,

 

I am back after a long time since the older forum is redirected to newer one. I have one assignment in which I have to install two NIC on HP-UNIX11iv1 server. and then i have to make such arrangements so that whenever any of NICs become faulty then It will switch over to the another. i.e NIC failover.

 

Please help me in  my task.

 

regards,

John

The solution is called "APA"; depending on your OS version it may be already included.

Hope this helps!
