I have an OSA network device already configured on my SLES12 system. I want to bring in another OSA device and set it up as a secondary device that will communicate with the network if the first OSA device fails. The second OSA device would use the same ip address. Also, I would prefer to use a different gateway.
using YAST I select the OSA device and then select "no link and ip setup (bonding slaves).
Select Add --> ipv4 address label --> Secondary
ip address --> same IP address as first device
mask ---> 255.255.255.0
I did not see an option for a different gateway. Is it possible to use a different gateway?
Do I need to do the same procedure with the original device?
I do not see any bonding with the ifconfig output.
I deleted the ip addr and Bcast from the output.
