So which mode should i select from below list to achieve my requirement:

1)Manual
2)FEC_AUTO
3)LACP_AUTO
4)LAN_MONITOR

Can any one help me detail steps configuration of below files to achieve my requirements.

1)/etc/rc.config.d/netconf
2) /etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaportconf
3)/etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaconf

Note:Our OS :B.11.31

Please also see below commands output.

# ioscan -fnkC lan

hi

can refer to APPENDIX pages 106 onwards of this Doc
http://docs.hp.com/en/J4240-90046/J4240-90046.pdf

now Port config mode depends on the hardware supports or not or the Switch supports or not.

then start the services.

#/sbin/init.d/hplm stop
#/sbin/init.d/hpapa stop
#/sbin/init.d/hpapa start
#/sbin/init.d/hplm satrt

then you can use SAM and go to Network And Communications and open Network Interface cards there on the APA Port you can give the IP Address.
