I'm intending to use virtual IP for my failover implementation.
- *Server A (192.168.0.1) * - takes virtual IP of 192.168.0.10 by default
- *Server B (192.168.0.2) * - takes virtual ip of 192.168.0.10 when server A is down
I'm using Windows machines and my current method is to run a script on another machine to check if server a has failed, and when it fail, the script will telnet into server B to add the virtual IP.
I'm wondering if there is an alternative solution to using telnet to change to virtual IP. I want to ensure that the failover is automatic the option of getting a network administrator to add the virtual IP is out of question.
