Backup Network Connection
Posted on 2002-07-17
I have Solaris servers and I want to connect every server to two Ethernet switches. That's mean I will have two Network Interface Cards (NIC) on every Solaris server.
The scenario that I want is as following:
if one of the two switches failed while the active Ethernet connection on the server is connected to it, the Solaris machine should switch the traffic to the other Ethernet interface (the backup interface)
So, I would like to know if this kind of back is possible. If not, how I can install backup network interface on the Solaris machine???
If this is possible, then how and what are the commands and I prefer both Ethernet interfaces to be in the same IP segment.
