Re: Setting IP redunduncay in AS/400

You should see the card in that list, and It will tell you. Here's an example of a 2849 with one port:
CMB04 2844 Operational MFIO Processor
LIN03 2849 Operational LAN Adapter
CMN03 2849 Operational Ethernet Port

And two ports:

CMB10 5706 Operational Comm Processor
LIN07 5706 Operational LAN Adapter
CMN23 5706 Operational Ethernet Port
CMN18 5706 Operational Ethernet Port

I am not sure if they have 2 ports. Is there a way to check remotely?

Do these adapters have available unused ports? Many have 2 ports but certainly not all.
