    I still don't quite get your environment, do you perhaps a drawing?


    You write about a production and disaster recovery IP, are those for virtual servers or self IP addresses of the BIG-IP?



    I sort of expect something like this.

    There is a production BIG-IP with virtual server with IP address You want that same IP address on the disaster recovery BIG-IP so that if the production BIG-IP fails you can enable it on disaster recovery BIG-IP. For that to work you would have to add the virtual IP on the disaster recovery BIG-IP but disabled and not responding to pings. Then afterwards you can add the rest of the virtual server configuration.


    One question I still have is why the setup with a production and disaster recovery BIG-IP? Create a cluster and you have a way better way to handle one system breaking down.
