We have purchased license for APA software with number recently from HP. We are planning to install and configure the APA this weekend. I am looking for a help to know whether my different kind of LAN cards will support APA. I have two types of LAN cards in my server on which we are going to implement APA. I would like to know whether APA will have any issue or difficulty in configuring APA between these lan cards. We are installing APA between LAN1 and LAN0 in which LAN1 is iether and other one is igelan.
I am unable to find any answer in APA Admin document about this. The doc only says devices whould have same operational characteristics.
Can any one please help me on this ?

What you can't have is a 100mb card with a gigabyte card

Most Important thing while going for APA config
both lan cards must have same speed or should be identical,
Please refer below procedure to configuration
decide which two lan interface you want to put in apa
both interface should be in same vlan.
verify link between to interface using command
# linkloop -i PrimaryPPANumber StationAddrOfSecondary
# vi /etc/rc.config.d/hp_apaportconf
# /sbin/init.d/hplm stop
# /sbin/init.d/hpapa stop
# /sbin/init.d/hpapa start
verify lan interface entry is proper here
it shoudl show like
900 0 1
For verification you can also do using lanadmin command
lanadmin -r 0
then lanscan -q should show like
after few seconds it should come back as
900 1 0
Hope this solves ur query,
Don't forget to assign points.
