How to setup NIC Failover in HP-UX 11.31 with HP APA

I am new to H-UX 11.31, and I am trying to setup some new servers, and am looking for help in setting up NIC failover on the servers with HP APA...

 

I am using LAN2 as my Primary NIC, and LAN3 is to be my failover NIC...

 

Can anyone reference with where I need to start to configure this on the servers....
