Overview of Multilink Adapter Support

The IBM Virtual Shared Disk subsystem supports nodes that have two switch adapters, when a multilink IP address has been configured. The data is striped across the adapters and if an adapter fails, there is still an additional adapter which can continue communication. You enable this support by specifying ml0 as the adapter_name on the vsdnode command.
