2 APA Configuration with Lan Monitor

I would want to configure APA with LAN MONITOR method. I want to create 2 APA LANs lan900 and lan901. I have 4 NIC cards of same capacity 1GB each. The lan900 will have lan0 and lan4 as link aggs and lan901 will have lan1 and lan5 as link aggs.

LAN900:
lan 0 0/2/1/0 iether CLAIMED INTERFACE HP A7012-60601 PCI/PCI-X 1000Base-T Dual-port Adapter
lan 4 0/5/1/0 iether CLAIMED INTERFACE HP A7012-60601 PCI/PCI-X 1000Base-T Dual-port Adapter

LAN901:
lan 1 0/2/1/1 iether CLAIMED INTERFACE HP A7012-60601 PCI/PCI-X 1000Base-T Dual-port Adapter
lan 5 0/5/1/1 iether CLAIMED INTERFACE HP A7012-60601 PCI/PCI-X 1000Base-T Dual-port Adapter

I know i have to edit /etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaconf and hp_apaportconf files to achieve this result, but i am puzzled to do this for 2 APA, but i had done for 1 APA configuration in my setup. Please let me know what are the changes i need to make in the above files.

Thanks in Advance.

Re: 2 APA Configuration with Lan Monitor

Need to add the entries in the hp_apaconf file:

HP_APA_INTERFACE_NAME[0]=lan900
HP_APA_GROUP_CAPABILITY[0]=3

HP_APA_INTERFACE_NAME[0]=lan901
HP_APA_GROUP_CAPABILITY[0]=5

Add the entries on hp_apaportconf file:

HP_APAPORT_INTERFACE_NAME[0]=lan0
HP_APAPORT_GROUP_CAPABILITY[0]=3
HP_APAPORT_CONFIG_MODE[0]=LAN_MONITOR

HP_APAPORT_INTERFACE_NAME[1]=lan4
HP_APAPORT_GROUP_CAPABILITY[1]=3
HP_APAPORT_CONFIG_MODE[1]=LAN_MONITOR

HP_APAPORT_INTERFACE_NAME[2]=lan1
HP_APAPORT_GROUP_CAPABILITY[2]=5
HP_APAPORT_CONFIG_MODE[2]=LAN_MONITOR

HP_APAPORT_INTERFACE_NAME[3]=lan5
HP_APAPORT_GROUP_CAPABILITY[3]=5
HP_APAPORT_CONFIG_MODE[3]=LAN_MONITOR

Restarted the APA and did a lanqueryconf -s and applied lanapplyconf, and the APA started working properly.
