Re: APA errno = 219

If either of these lan1 or lan2 have an IP address assigned to them, you need to disable this by downing and unplumbing the interface prior to running lanapplyconf command

ifconfig lan1 down
ifconfig lan1 unplumb
ifconfig lan2 down
ifconfig lan2 unplumb



make sure, if you are coming in thru lan1 or lan2 via ssh (or god forbid telnet) your connection will die. So, it is best doing such configuration from the system console.

Hope this helps.

Re: APA errno = 219

Re: APA errno = 219

after unplumbing lan2 the error remain same

But once you make lan2 plumb and then apply lanapplyconf .We are getting fresh error stating:
Reading ASCII file /etc/lanmon/lanconfig.ascii
STANDBY port lan2 has an IP address configured, Fail-Over Group lan901 will not be configured

Re: APA errno = 219

unplumbing lan2 doesn't solve the issue. Is there any known solution?

Re: APA errno = 219

Have a brand-new install of the APA software on a legacy 11.11 system, with exactly this problem, 2nd port is not defined - or configured anywhere - and trying to bring up lan900 give us the same error.

Literally followed the example for creating a Failover Group off of page 107 of the HP-UX 11iv1 Admin Guide - only the IP is different.
