Exactly what I am thinking about doing too. Is there any reason this cannot be combined with bridging to serve redundant IP connections to 2 or more LPARs using only two network cards?

This was all done differently on old AS/400's. But on newer IBM i installations there is something called "Aggregate Ethernet Lines". This came out with 7.1.

We have 5 LPARs on each of our servers. Recently we faced an issue where
the LAN adaptor of iseries system failed and we had a five hour outage.
I was considering if we could have IP redundency - so that each LPAR would
have 2 IPs pointing one IP which the user access. So if one IP fails,
there is a fail-over to the other IP. Could some please guide how this is
done in AS/400 system?
Thanks and Regards,
