Thanks.
 
Yes, at least one adaptor in each LPAR has two ports.

WRKHDWRSC *CMN

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.

  Hi,

  We use IBM i V6R1.

  We have a 2 or more LAN adaptors in each LPAR. We use one IP for HA (ITERA) and other is accessed by users.

  Thanks and Regards,
  Vik.

  Please tell us the software release as the available options change significantly. If you are truly running AS/400 then you may not have options.  Also do you have more than 1 LAN card available for each partition?

  Hi,

  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,
  Vik.
