bl870c i2 / BL890c i2 with VC and APA

I am trying to configure new bl870 i2 servers.
in the server I have 2 cards connected to each VC switch.
what I've done is configuring lan900 as MANUAL APA of 2 cards (in the same switch),
lan901 is 2 lans from the other switch and lan902 is LAN_MONITOR for both lan900 and lan901.

so I have lan902 as lan900 active and lan901 standby

I checked disconnecting cables and seems like this configuration is working .

is this configuration correct ????

does anyone have any documents regarding configuration of APA in BL870/890 i2 servers ?

Sorry I don't know of any specific documentation. The APA guide is here:

This is how I set up our BL870c i2 cluster nodes:

2 vlan901_bay1
3 vlan901_bay2
4 vlan900_bay2
5 vlan902_bay1
