How to active this network adapter?

When I configure two VIO Servers, VIOS1 used to ping its gateway, after I configured second VIOS2, VIOS1 cannpt ping its gateway, when I run this command:

entstat -all ent#|grep -i priority
Priority: 5 Active: False

How to make Active to True?

Hi Rainbow Bean,

you need to make sure that the resources / settings for your vio servers are different and unique:

Code:
VIOS1:
VIRTUAL ETHERNET:
Slot=2
VLAN ID = 1
Trunk ID = 1
(VIOS1 Shared Ethernet Adapter IP = xxx.xxx.xxx.xx1)

VIRTUAL SCSI:
20 = VLPAR1 (vhost0) 
30 = VLPAR2 (vhost1)
40 = VLPAR3 (vhost2)

SAN: 
HBA-->Switch1


Code:
VIOS2 
VIRTUAL ETHERNET:
Slot=3
VLAN ID = 3
Trunk ID = 3
(VIOS2 Shared Ethernet Adapter IP = xxx.xxx.xxx.xx2)

VIRTUAL SCSI:
21 = VLPAR1 (vhost0) 
31 = VLPAR2 (vhost1) 
41 = VLPAR3 (vhost2)

SAN: 
HBA -->Switch2

If you have in error set the same priority for the second vio than you had for the first one, this might prevent the adapter from coming up.

Are you sure you don't have a duplicate IP since this could cause problems like yours, too.

Kind regards
