Default NIC Bonding for SP MBT

Hi rgrasz,

Open the System Platform Webconsole --> Server Management --> Network Configuration page.

Under Bonding Interface, Create a NIC Bond (Bond0) with

Mode: Active/Backup,
Slave 1 / Primary: eth0 and
Slave 2 / Secondary: eth5

Scroll down to "Domain Network Interface" and change Domain0's "avpublic" from eth0 to Bond0. Save the changes by clicking on Save button.

Yes, NIC bonding is supported on S8800 servers and HP servers.

For HA configuration, the proper method is to have Eth0 connected to SW-A and Eth-2 connected to Sw-B for both servers.

Regards,

Sabir.
