Citrix ADC

Configuring owner node response status

You can configure the ownerDownResponse option on a node which has a spotted SNIP address. By default, the option is enabled. It allows the spotted IP address to respond to PING or ARP requests (coming from the upstream router) when the node is inactive. If you disable the option, the IP address cannot respond to the router requests when the owner node is inactive.

To know how this feature is used for monitoring static routes in ECMP deployment, see Using Equal Cost Multiple Path (ECMP) topic.

To set owner node response status by using the Citrix ADC CLI

At the command prompt, type:

add ns ip <IPAddress> [-ownerNode <positive_integer>] [-ownerDownResponse (YES | NO )] [-td <positive_integer>]

Example

add ns ip 2.2.2.2 255.255.255.0 -ownernode 6 –ownerdownResponse YES

  1. Navigate to System > Network > IPs and click Add to create a spotted SNIP address.
  2. On the Create IP Address page, select, or clear the ownerDownResponse check box.
