The following procedure describes how to add specific targets if you are using test addresses to implement probe-based failure detection.
Before You Begin
Make sure that your probe targets meet the requirements that are listed in Requirements for Choosing Targets for Probe-based Failure Detection.
Ensure that your role has the appropriate rights profile to perform this procedure. See Using Rights Profiles to Perform Network Configuration.
$ route -p add -host destination-IP gateway-IP -static
destination-IP and gateway-IP are IPv4 addresses of the system to be used as a target. For example, you would type the following command to specify the target system 192.0.2.8/27, which is on the same subnet as the interfaces in IPMP group, ipmp0:
$ route -p add -host 192.0.2.8/27 192.0.2.8/27 -static
This new route will be automatically configured every time the system is restarted. If you only want to define a temporary route to a target system for probe-based failure detection, then do not use the –p option.
