HP-UX 11.11 APA - MAC Flapping Issue

Hi Guru's,

I recently setup an APA for my HP-UX 11.11 machine. However, our network guys has detected that there's a MAC flapping that is occurring.

Is there any setting in APA to disable this MAC flapping issue?


TIA

Hello Sysadm !!


Is the LAN card & switch auto negotiating
with each other in speed & mode.

Hope the APA configuration is as per the switch topology.

# lanadmin -x 0
Speed = 100 Full-Duplex.
Autonegotiation = On.

Thanks

this is somewhat weird, i already tested the APA by physically removing the cables and it worked.

but how come my lanadmin shows that there is no link?

lanadmin -x 0
Current Config = NO LINK AUTONEG
