tadm set-failover-group-primary common_options --config=config_name --virtual-ip=ip --primary-node=node


Use this command to toggle the primary and backup nodes in a failover group. If the administration node process is running as non-root on the node where the instances are located, then you must run start-failover on those nodes as a root user. This is to manually toggle the nodes. If this command is not executed, the nodes will not be toggled. And, when you execute get-failover-group-prop , the result will show the configured primary and the backup nodes, which will not be the same as the runtime primary and backup nodes.


For information about common_options, run the help command.


Specify the name of the configuration for which you want to toggle the primary and backup nodes of a failover group.


Specify the virtual IP address of the failover group for which you want to toggle the primary and backup nodes.


Specify the primary node for the failover group. This is the existing backup node of the failover group.
