Re: APA configuration

What is your HP-UX version?

Have you read the APA documentation appropriate for your version?

HPUX 11.11 and 11.23 (11i v1 and v2):
http://docs.hp.com/en/J4240-90046/index.html

HPUX 11.31 (11i v3):
http://docs.hp.com/en/J4240-90041/index.html

The general idea is:
1.) Define one link aggregate (e.g. lan900) in LACP mode. Its members will be the first 2 of your physical LAN interfaces (e.g. lan0 and lan1).

2.) Define another link aggregate (e.g. lan901) in failover group mode. Its members will be the first LACP link aggregate (lan900) and the hot-standby physical interface (e.g. lan2), with the appropriate priorities.

3.) Don't configure any IP addresses for lan0, lan1, lan2 or lan900. Only the "topmost" aggregate lan901 should have an IP address.
