Changing network in take over mode

hi all ,

the current network configration for my FAS3240 in the rc file  is :

 

node 1 :

ifgrp create multi grp1 -b ip e4a e4b e0a e0b

ifgrp create multi grp2 -b ip e4c e4d

ifconfig grp1 `hostname`-grp1 mediatype auto netmask 255.0.0.0 partner grp1 mtusize 1500

ifconfig grp2  `hostname`-grp2 mediatype auto partner grp2 mtusize 1500

 

node 2:

 

ifgrp create multi grp1 -b ip e4a e4b e0a e0b

ifgrp create multi grp2 -b ip e4c e4d

ifconfig grp1 `hostname`-grp1 mediatype auto netmask 255.0.0.0 partner grp1 mtusize 1500

ifconfig grp2 `hostname`-grp2 mediatype auto partner grp2 mtusize 1500

 

i want to change it by doing the below steps :

 

 

1-take over node2 by node1

2-edit the rc file of node2 to be :

 

ifgrp create single grp1 -b ip e0a e0b

ifgrp create single grp2 -b ip e4c e4d

ifconfig grp1 `hostname`-grp1 mediatype auto netmask 255.0.0.0 partner grp1 mtusize 1500

ifconfig grp2 `hostname`-grp2 mediatype auto partner grp2 mtusize 1500

 

3-after doning changes in the rc file , will reboot node 2 by using "reboot" will not use the option -f

 

4-after node 2 startup ,i will start the give back from node1 to node 2 .

 

 

as shown below i will only change the mode from multi to single and instead of using 4 network ports will use two , the IP will be the same and the VIF name will be the same.

 

 

so when i give back from node1 to node2 the give back will work normally ? or that can not be done ( the point i donot want to have downtime )

 

 

and if the above cannot be done , is there a way to change the network configration with out having down time ?

 

your quick response is apprciated
