how to do network failover/load balance on HPUX11.23

dear ITRC,
I have an rx4640 with one dual port 10/100/1000T NIC. The servers come with HPUX11.23. Is there any way to make both port in network failover/load balance mode?
Is it possible to do so?

Hi,

You could use the APA product for both LAN load balance & failover - available here:

OR

HP Service Guard for LAN, System or SW failover - available here:

HTH,
Jeff

Hi,

You can use Auto-Port Aggregation (APA). Given that you only have one NIC card (eventhough dual port), I'm not inclined to suggest MC/ServiceGuard because of the redundancy requirements in configuring a clustering solution.
