      There is an article in www.sysadminmag.com, June 2001 by Thomas Kranz
    "Redundant NIC's on Solaris. He wrote a script to do a ping test to check
    for failure and then upon failure change default routes.
      And with Solaris 8 OE update 10/00 you can use IP Multipathing.
    http://www.sun.com/blueprints/0201/Multipathing.pdf
      Other solutions to look at are Cisco's HSRP for the routers in front of
    the load balancers.
