Controlling which interface is used on a multi-homed machine
I recently installed Netview 5.1.2 on an SP Node, which has 2 interfaces
(don't they all ;). The second interface is using the a private
address (192.168.3 subnet) and is not reachable outside of the cluster.
Unfortunately, we are using MLMs and it seems to have the hostname set
to this non-routed interface address. The MLMs have this address in
their config tables.
I thinking that I can change the hostname, and probably run reset_ci.
But I want to be absolutely sure that I cover all of the potential
problems with this interface. I can't turn it off. We will also
probably enable the set force bind option on the oserv process.
Is there any other bases that I have to cover?
Thanks in advance,
