If you open the properties tab for virtual ethernet of the VIOS using the browser interface it is easy to see.

In your previous post - that I already answered - in is in the output. The number 1 and 2 (in a group of 5) that alternates/toggles between vioservers.

Talk to your employer about a course. If you are self-employed it is also a good investment in yourself. My humble opinion is that you are not ready to be working, alone, with POWER systems - at least not with the virtualization of them. (FYI)

a nice way to check which SEA is primary or secondary:
Code:
topas -E

as root user on one of the VIO-Server

Code:
Topas Monitor for host:    xxxxxxxxx   Interval:   2   Fri Apr 19 10:02:15 2013
