Question

I have:

1) Some IA-64 servers with HP-UX using APA (LB_MAC)

2) if disaster take place, I don't know from which LAN adapter I shall recover. 

3) DHCP pool of non-productive addresses for recovery isn't an option. All IP in DC are static....

 

I want to know how to do the following:

1) Two records with same hostname and different ha?

2) Ignite allow two ha in bootptab config?

 

Answer

Yes, you can use more than one hardware address for the same hostname in /etc/bootptab. 

 

Refer the below example for details:

*************************************************************************************************************

# vi /etc/bootptab

 

ignite-defaults:\

ht=ethernet:\

hn:\

bf=/opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi:\

bs=61

 

IgniteClientA:tc=ignite-defaults:ha=00d009000000:ip=190.40.101.22:sm=255.255.248.0:gw=190.1.48.1:ds=190.1.48.11

IgniteClientA:tc=ignite-defaults:ha=00c0a0000000:ip=190.40.101.22:sm=255.255.248.0:gw=190.1.48.1:ds=190.1.48.11

*************************************************************************************************************

 

In the above example the client "IgniteClientA" has 2 entries for different MAC addresses namely 00d009000000 and 00c0a0000000
