Re: Lan Interface

It's not necessary to configure all of them. Purposes for using them all would be if you needed the system to multi-homed for some reason (IP addresses on different subnets assigned to each one) or if you were going to use APA to utilize them as a single interface.

Re: Lan Interface

I would assume you have 4 NIC because you bought 4 nics..

A rhetorical question would be. "Do you need 4 nics ?"

Re: Lan Interface

Still the BL860c?

It looks like this (they are built-in by default):

ioscan:

lan 2 0/2/2/0 igelan CLAIMED INTERFACE HP PCI-X 1000Mbps Dual-port Built-in
lan 3 0/2/2/1 igelan CLAIMED INTERFACE HP PCI-X 1000Mbps Dual-port Built-in


Check the enclosure which NICs are assigned and connected to a switch.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
