veritas and nic cards


I have 2 machines with 3 NIC cards.
When I setup veritas, I receive this message:

e1000g1 has an IP address configured on it. It could be a public NIC on ken.
Are you sure you want to use e1000g1 for the first private heartbeat link?

As if e1000g1 should not have an IP address.
How to do that? i.e. remove the IP address.

Volume Manager
File System
Cluster Server

Since you are mentioning heartbeat, looks as if you are installing VCS... You can use any NIC and a Virtual IP will be assigned over that NIC. You can also select two NIC's for primary and secondary heartbeat links - They will both be virtual IP's.

Continue with the installation and output of ifconfig -a will show you the change later on.... keep asking but giving more details is always better.
