Hi

Based on your environment, it appears your using vmware, and your building your own VM, did you create a virtual MAC address from the OVH manager and add this to the eth0 adapter?

Best Regards

Danny

Consider the following:

- Your FO IP is E.F.G.H

On your Ubuntu VPS, Put the following on /etc/network/interfaces:



Of course, replace the letters with corresponding IP. Also, if your virtual NIC is not eth0, replace it to match your virtual hardware. Then, restart networking("/etc/init.d/networking restart") or reboot the VPS. That should do the job.
This method doesnt work for me. i have done what you said but it doesnt work. Do you have any solutions?

iface eth0 inet static
address E.F.G.H
netmask 255.255.255.255
broadcast E.F.G.H
post-up /sbin/ip -4 r a A.B.C.254 dev eth0
post-up /sbin/ip -4 r a 0.0.0.0/0 via A.B.C.254 dev eth0
pre-down /sbin/ip -4 r d 0.0.0.0/0 via A.B.C.254 dev eth0
pre-down /sbin/ip -4 r d A.B.C.254 dev eth0

Hi all,

I got Failover-IP adresses but i couldn't use it for my ubuntu virtual server. I can configure the failover ip adresses for centos or other linux versions. But in ubuntu i couldn't make it. I followed also instructions in the documentation page, but it didn't work for me.
Can anyone help me please?
