Hi Ravi:

You want 'auto-port-aggregation' (APA):

>>Still looking for configuring NIC Failover and standby.

That requires the APA software, which you must purchase, that James mentioned above. He also pointed you to the administrator guide for the software.

I'm not sure what else you could be looking for.

Re: Bonding on Hp-ux Box

Shalom ravi,

APA is the best route to network bonding. It actually provides the same functionality as is built into the Linux OS.

It is not free, it costs money to have this capability under HP-UX.

APA enables full bonding, active-active teaming.

Serviceguard contains a network card standby feature that is like active-passive bonding.

That is pretty much it. You buy APA, or you buy Serviceguard or you live without the feature.

Check your HP-UX OS support level, APA is free in the top two tiers of support for the HP-UX OS. Otherwise you have to buy it.
