Configuring owner node response status

In a cluster setup, on a node has a spotted SNIP address, you can configure the ownerDownResponse option. By default, the option is enabled, allowing 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 NetScaler 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

To set owner node response status by using the NetScaler GUI

  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.

To edit owner node response status by using the NetScaler GUI
