In the following configuration illustration, you use two NICs to provide the two interfaces:

If Node 1 fails, interface e0 on Node 1 stops functioning, but the secondary address on e0 on Node 2 handles the Node 1 network connection with the 230 network.

If Node 2 fails, e0 on Node 2 stops functioning, but e0 on Node 1 substitutes for the failed interface and handles the Node 2 network connection with the 230 network.
