    NIC configuration/Help needed

    jip

      Hello,

       

      I need to understand the following network configuration of a sun server.

      Which HA technology is used? Which IP addresses are used as sources?

      (Why there are a number of addresses in each sub network?)

      Could someone point me out to the right peace documentation?

       

      Thanks a lot!

      Yury
