Auto ip failover

Thats what the IP-Load balancing is for. Fail-over IP's will never do this, thats not what their intention was. Their intention was quick changes between servers should you ever change hardware but need to keep the same IP, not for redundancy purposes.

I don't see anything in the manager but is there a way to make an IP auto failover to another server should the server it's intended for fail?

Or is it something that can be made possible? Or will it stay manual for us to switchover ourselves?

OK you could put some delay in it, for example if port 80 still isnt responding after X amount of tries then flip over the IP (incase the server is just restarting etc).
