Virtualizing network adapters under HACMP
« on: May 15, 2008, 12:21:39 AM »
We are starting the process of virtualizing the network adapters on our HACMP cluster members.  Since each virtual adapter is supported by two real NICs (primary and backup) the idea is to have only one virtual adapter per network on each HACMP member.  Up till now we've had two NICs per network (with two networks) on each cluster member.  Does anybody have any experience doing something like this?  I'm wondering if anybody has any tips or valuable experiences to share.

This is a supported configuration (one virtual adapter in the partition (LPAR) starting with HACMP 5.3 I believe. Current HACMP software level is HACMP 5.4.1.

I will be getting to this in my HACMP articles.
