You should reference the

You should reference the appropriate version of the bundled agent guide, depending upon your version of VCS.  You can get the doc from something like:

https://vos.symantec.com/documents/doc_details/vcs/6.0/Solaris/ProductGuides/

vcs_bundled_agents_60_sol.pdf

In there you will see the settings necessary to get the MultiNICB agent work with IPMP, like:

Multi-Pathing mode for MultiNICB agent

To activate this mode set the value of the UseMpathd attribute to 1. The MultiNICB agent, in Multi-Pathing mode, monitors Oracles IP Multi-Pathing daemon (mpathd). The MultiNICB agent specifically monitors the FAILED flag on physical interfaces and the mpathd process. See the man page: in.mpathd (1M) for more information on this daemon.

Oracles mpathd daemon monitors the interfaces that are part of the IPMP group. The daemon:

  • sends the packets to other hosts on the network for probe-based detection as long as a test IP address is assigned to the network interface

  • checks the link status of the interfaces for link-based detection as long as the interface supports the test for detection

    The mpathd daemon can perform both link- and probe-based detection when test IP addresses are assigned to NIC interfaces.

    The MultiNICB agent logs errors when the daemon is not running, or if a configuration path error exits. The mpathd daemon logs link failures and IP address failovers in the system log.

 

And also discussions on the appropriate settings for the 'GroupName' and 'MpathdCommand' attributes of the MultiNICB agent.
