Serviceguard linux standby lan

With serviceguard under hpux you can define a standby netwerkcard.

With serviceguard under linux, it doesn't work.
Here you find my setup. I didn't configure an ip adres on eth1

NODE_NAME serv1
NETWORK_INTERFACE eth0
HEARTBEAT_IP 10.10.0.70
NETWORK_INTERFACE eth1

NODE_NAME serv2
NETWORK_INTERFACE eth0
HEARTBEAT_IP 10.10.0.71
NETWORK_INTERFACE eth1

Re: Serviceguard linux standby lan

A little more data would be helpful, for example the error message you got and the procedure you used.

I recently did a 4 hour hands on course in Serviceguard Linux and everything worked the same as it does in HP-UX

Tell me more about your setup and I'll try and help. Its always better to give more detail versus less detail.

Also check the little things like the hub, is it plugged in and such.

Re: Serviceguard linux standby lan

You are correct. Linux doesn't have a standby LAN. Instead Linux Bonding is used. This is documented in the "managing" manual. If you are bonding any of the Broadcom based NICs, you MUST use the BCM5700 driver. Download that driver from the HP drivers page. Follow the instructions VERY carefully, they are confusing.

Re: Serviceguard linux standby lan

This is correct. Linux does not work quite the same way HP-UX does, but uses somethuing called a BOND to do the same thing.
Essentially you bond two eth cards into a bond and you use the bond interface rather than the eth
This is documented in the Serviceguard for Linux manuals at:
