ServiceGuard (Linux) Standby network interfaces

With SG Linux using a bonded device, can a second bond device be used as a standby interface?

Re: ServiceGuard (Linux) Standby network interfaces

SGLX does not support standby interfaces.. Your bonding of multiple interfaces via standard Linux mechanisms provides the standby capabilities for SGLX.. THis is one of the important differences between the HPUX and LX versions of Serviceguard otherwise everything is the same. Even metrocluster and contiental cluster is also available on Linux SG.
