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 add -host destination-IP gateway-IP -static

    Replace the values of destination-IP and gateway-IP with the IPv4 address 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 testgroup1.

    $ route add -host -static 
  3. Add routes to additional hosts on the network to be used as target systems.
