Logical Domains 1.3 Administration Guide

ProcedureConfigure a Host Route for Probe-Based IPMP

Note –

This procedure only applies to guest domains and to releases prior to 1.3, where only probe-based IPMP is supported.

If no explicit route is configured for a router in the network corresponding to the IPMP interfaces, then one or more explicit host routes to target systems need to be configured for the IPMP probe-based detection to work as expected. Otherwise, probe detection can fail to detect the network failures.

  1. Configure a host route.

    # route add -host destination-IP gateway-IP -static

    For example:

    # route add -host -static

    Refer to Configuring Target Systems in System Administration Guide: IP Services for more information.
