Successfully setting up an IP Failover group requires three steps:

  • Add a reserved IP address to a NIC that will become the IP Failover master.

  • Use PATCH or PUT to enable ipFailover by providing the relevant ip and nicUuid values.

  • Add the same reserved IP address to any other NICs that are a member of the same LAN. Those NICs will become IP Failover members.
