howto add a 2nd ip address to an existing netcard on itanium hpux11.3.

The term "logical ip address" suddenly does not exist?  I can't find it anymore.

 

I wanted to add another "logical ip address" to my one network card that is plugged in. This was a 2 second task in SAM. 

 

 

So my two questions are:

1.  what is "logical ip address" called today in hpux11.3?

2.  can I get a "logical ip address" setup without a reboot?

Assume that you want to add another IP address(let's say 192.1.1.2) to lan0 which already exists with an IP address 192.1.1.1 assigned. Then, try:

 

# ifconfig lan0:1 192.1.1.2 up

 

Note that this will not remain assigned over the next reboot.

 

To make this permanently assigned even beyond system reboot, you need to

add another entry in /etc/rc.config.d/netconf.

Thanks. 

And I found the new name to "network logical interface" is now  "IP Multiplexing."

And I am "Configuring IP multiplexing" instead of "adding a logical ip interface."

 

And my name is now Stan, not steve.  And this is Terra, not Earth.  And instead of hpux, we use HpU-X (for extreeme).

 

Disclaimer:   I expect the nouns to change soon.  (oops.  My name is Steve again already).
