When IP Local Recovery is enabled and the IP resource fails its quick check or deep check tests, then LifeKeeper for Windows will do the following:

  • First, LifeKeeper for Windows will attempt to bring the IP address back in service on the current network interface.
  • If that fails, LifeKeeper for Windows will check the resource instance to determine if there is a backup interface available. If so, it will then attempt to move the IP address to the backup interface.
  • If all local recovery attempts fail, LifeKeeper for Windows will perform a failover of the IP address and all dependent resources to a backup server.

Even if you do not have a backup adapter, you can enable Local Recovery so that LifeKeeper for Windows will retry the primary network interface again before initiating failover to a backup server.
