Hi

HA means that you can have one fail in your environment and the service is up.
it means, you must have duplicity of services/devices to have HA.

Thanks for the reply. Being an HP-UX SA i understand HA generally but wanted to actually find out what that means at the network level..not just lan cards..but higher..more architectual point of view.

Thanks
