Requirements for Choosing Targets for Probe-based Failure Detection

    Refer to the following requirements to determine which hosts on your network might serve as good targets:

  • Make sure that the prospective targets are available and running. Make a list of their IP addresses.

  • Make sure that the target interfaces are on the same network as the IPMP group that you are configuring.

  • The netmask and broadcast addresses of the target systems must be the same as the addresses in the IPMP group.

  • The target system must be able to answer ICMP requests from the interface that is using probe-based failure detection.
