Force a Failover

LTM 6400 Active/Standby



If a virtual server (or its servers) is/are not available for managing a request, Is it possible to force a failover? How?



Thank you,

    You mean automatically or just from the command line...




    Automatically, I can think of several ways... Including a simple script to check and run 'b failover standby' or the tmsh equivalent that executes out of crontab (And hangs around... crontab would be just to restart it. or inittab with respawn if you don't feel comfortable putting the locking and detection into the script to prevent multiple copies running).
