If there are multiple network adapters installed on the iSeries, isn't there a way to configure them to spread the load without physically wiring each adapter to the network?

Yes.
Got to network connections…highlight both adapters and right click…choose Bridge Connections.

    Hi DataMail, I really can't imagine how it is possible to "spread the load without physically wiring each adapter to the network"... You can "trunk" two+ NICS in a single logical interface (at least under Linux) to "spread the load", but if not all of NICs are connected to the network where will go half of packets routed to the unconnected NIC? m4nc1n suggested bridging, which is something with a similar idea, but with a quite different purpose (to connect transparently two physically separated networks) but bridging also doesn't work if one of the NICs is not connected to the network. So, the answer is simply no. BR, Petko

    Yes, the question doesn't really make much sense. How could you "spread the load" if you haven't connected the ports you want to spread it across? That would be like setting up a RAID 0 array and then not connecting one of the hard drives, you would lose half your data (if it functioned at all).
