Pinned topic How to change order of IBM.NetworkInterface resources?

‏2017-11-13T21:16:32Z |

We have an HADR pair with two network interfaces, of which one is reserved for a certain purpose. When listing the network interface resources using lsrsrc they are listed in different orders on different machines. On the machine where the reserved interface is listed earlier (#3) we have a problem with ConfigRM trying to use it instead of the other interface, which is listed as #4.

 

I realize the interfaces are harvested by RSCT automatically. Is there a way to affect the order in which they are harvested, or otherwise prioritize them? In the example below I want eth1 to be listed before eth0 on both hosts:
