simple test:-
1)ssh to the server.
2)plug out one of the 2 cables that I going to the network ports.
3)your connection should still be alive.
4) do the same for the other cable.
5)verify the messages file that the failover successful message is reflected

Look @ the "detach test" portion IPMP configuration and detach problem

Thanks, i had use the if_mpadm -r /-d to test, it work..
but instead of doing fail-over, how do i do the load balancing?

IPMP does not support load balancing but trunking does.
