Mask a server ?!
Posted on 1997-10-14
I have two RS/6000 (AIX 3.2.5) with three network cards (one FDDI). All configurations are equal in both machines, and both are connected to three disk systems 9333-500.
My question is, can I ifconfig a network card of one server with the other's IP address (refreshing the arp table) when one server goes down for maintenance, and mounting the filesystems from the shared disks (all in the same volume group), with a few scripts ?
Or are some implications, like reinitializing the disks, or some TCP/IP considerations ?
Tanks in advance.
