RE: Multipath route

GoodMornings
Thanks for your input
Im looking for redundancy but a little extra:

I have already bonding

bond0 :- eth0 + eth1
bond1 :- eth2 + eth3

And I have a IP witch I can reach from the 2Lans
Its a ILOM IP that I use for PowerFencing on a cluster setup
Since I have the paths I thought I could use them to get extra reliability
Thats why I went into this iproute thing...

BestRegards
Jose
