The IPMultiNICB agent works with the MultiNICB agent. The agent configures and manages virtual IP addresses (IP aliases) on an active network device that the MultiNICB resource specifies. When the MultiNICB agent reports a particular interface as failed, the IPMultiNICB agent moves the IP address to the next active interface. You can use this agent for IP addresses on multiple-adapter systems.
If multiple service groups have IPMultiNICB resources associated with the same MultiNICB resource, only one group should have a MultiNICB resource. The other groups should have a proxy resource pointing to the MultiNICB resource.
For the MultiNICB and IPMultiNICB agents, VCS supports Auto-port Aggregation (APA).
