how to do a sync-failover on servicenow? (f5 BIG-IP)


I have active/standby pair. I can make changes to active unit using servicenow actions (f5 BIG IP actions) . But now I want to make sync to standby unit. Is it possible to do this for servicenow? Do I need to use any REST commands? Or is there an easier way to do this?

Regarding the iControl REST method for syncing (from your active device) to HA-Group, here's the command (using curl):

curl -sku <user>:<pass> https://<managementPort>/mgmt/tm/cm/config-sync -X POST -H "Content-type: application/json" -d '{"command":"run", "utilCmdArgs": "to-group HA"}'

See also iControl REST API documentation. You can find the reference to the "run" command in the "Using the run command" section (p. 63 of the v14.1 doc).
