ProcedureHow to Manually Specify Target Systems for Probe-Based Failure Detection

  1. Log in with your user account to the system where you are configuring probe-based failure detection.

  2. Add a route to a particular host to be used as a target in probe-based failure detection.

    $ route -p add -host destination-IP gateway-IP -static

    where destination-IP and gateway-IP are IPv4 addresses of the host to be used as a target. For example, you would type the following to specify the target system, which is on the same subnet as the interfaces in IPMP group itops0:

    $ route -p add -host -static

    This new route will be automatically configured every time the system is restarted. If you want to define only a temporary route to a target system for probe-based failure detection, then do not use the -p option.

  3. Add routes to additional hosts on the network to be used as target systems.
