Building a practical redundant solution
This chapter describes the implementation steps needed to build a redundant network connection setup between a z/VM system and the external network switches. In our lab environment, we used the IBM J48E network switch and two Open Systems Adapters - Express 3 (OSA-Express 3) with 10 Gb Ethernet ports. We used an IBM System z10 and two IBM J48E switches built to provide configuration examples for achieving high availability.
