Merge NICs

Hi friends,
I installed oracle 10g ( RAC on 2 IBM p5 570 servers running AIX 5.3ML04 and HACMP5.2 (used Raw devices, not used GPFS). Each server has 4 x 1Gbps ethernet cards (NICs), en0 and en1 for boot address, en2 and en3 for oracle interconnect.
Now i want to merge 2 NICs (en2 and en3) to increase the interconnect speed, but donot know how to do this.
Anybody help me.

Thanks in advanced.

smit etherchannel

Creating an etherchannel from the two adapter ports will create a single logical concatinated port, en4.

This will involve some work for your network admin too. The switch ports will have to be placed in a port group so that the network switch treats them as one logical port at the switch.
