    Exclamation IPMP Equivalent in SUSE 11.1

    Hi Everyone,

    We have Sun blades x6250 running SUSE 11.1. We want to configure the IPMP equivalent on 4 blades. Every blade has 2 physical NIC for a certain VLAN. I need to configure one virtual IP for failover. Every NIC has an IP assigned, that is two physical IPs. I want to assign a third virtual IP for failover. In case one physical NIC fails, this virtual IP will use the other functional NIC.

    I looked and tried configuring bonding/bridge, but they are not exactly the equivalent to IPMP.

    Thank you for your help in advance!!!

    Bonding should allow you to do what you describe.

    Which part of the bonding config have you looked at ? or are struggling with ? If you post details of your config I will try and help.

    Thumbs up Re: IPMP Equivalent in SUSE 11.1


    Thank you so much for responding!

    Our problem is now solved, it is bonding indeed! I configured two bondx interfaces, each interface using two physical NICs. Now if I take the cable out of one port, it fails over to the other physical interface.

    Thank you!!!
