Re: NFS server

Sure. When mounting just be sure to use the IP address of the 2nd NIC from the NFS client rather than the primary.

Re: NFS server

let me ask is this can improve our NFS performance if we use second nic and export these to other HPUX 11.23 box

Re: NFS server

It totally depends on the requirement ,that how much I/Os goes over NFS, if you want to
separate the network load over NFS you may use a dedicated subnet but your clients must have
access.

if you need to bind that lan with a new name
yes you may make the entry in the /etc/hosts
file on either side other wise nfs mounts
works with IP as well.
