For Solaris 10, I've got the answer I needed at :

I would like to do the same network teaming/bonding (as it's
termed in Linux)  for HP-UX & RHEL & older version of Solaris 9.

On HP9000, HP-UX version :
B.11.11 U 9000/800

On Itanium, HP-UX version :
B.11.23 U

On Redhat, version is (heard network teaming in Linux is called bonding) :
 2.4.20-8  &

Solaris :
version 9  (unlike ver 10, heard that this needs a trunking software)

Appreciate if the step by step commands,  the configuration
file (& directory where it's located) are given.  If any addtional
software is needed (say trunking or 802.x aggregation), pls
provide the location to download from.

Priority is to provide redundancy in case one link/NIC is down
but would be nice if load sharing of traffic is available for the
teaming/bonding configuration

If possible, avoid IPMP (as this  requires 3 IP addresses) &
firewall rules may be affected.  A single IP address is best,
if not, then suggest the next best option for each of the OS

If you're familiar with only one or two of the above OS, your
answers  are appreciated too.

If there's any specifics on the Cisco switch (6513) end that
needs special handling, kindly highlight as well
