I have one dedicaced server with its own IP and another IP (failover) who refer to the first.
I will wish to change the gateway of a Proxmox virtual machine (openvz) who runs on this dedicaced server to go through the failover IP rather than the ip of host main server.
Once connected to a virtual machine, when I do a traceroute
VE# traceroute www.google.fr traceroute to www.google.fr (184.108.40.206), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets 1 MY_SERVER_NAME.ovh.net (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx FIRST_IP_MAIN_SERVER) 0.021 ms 0.010 ms 0.009 ms
The first line tells me the ip of host main server. I would like that the traceroute display the second IP failover.
VE# route Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 192.0.2.1 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 venet0 default 192.0.2.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 venet0

10.10.101.2 is the virtual machine IP (interface venet0)
Any ideas ?
