Virtual Reality

A few weeks back, I was asked if AIX supported virtual ips; that is if a network card could have more than 1 ip.

And naturally, I said yes of course.

The command is relatively simple it is: smit mkinetvi and configuration is pretty straightforward just like a normal ethernet interface except of course that you have to name the virtual network interface and select the "Network Interface(s) using VIPA*".

And that is it!

 

*VIPA is Virtual IP Address
