HP APA failover problems

Hi Gurus,


I have small problem with APA failover .. I have made a config with  a server with four nics so that the server is connected to two Cisco switches with two connections to each. The LACP port channels work but when trying to configure the failover group the lanqueryconf is not so happy :-(


uxblade04:/etc/rc.config.d # nwmgr -S apa

uxblade04:/etc/rc.config.d # lanqueryconf -s -c /tmp/lanconfig.ascii
WARNING: None of the ports in subnet ( 901 ) have an IP address assigned

lan900  is working ( if I change the config so that the lan901 is used it also works ?) so I think that the problem might be in the switch interconnections? Any clues what might be the problem? Is there something special needs from APA side to the switch interconnection config ?
