The standard Linux NIC bonding mechanism is the recommended means of providing network interface redundancy in a high availability configuration. The LifeKeeper IP Recovery Kit fully supports the creation of virtual IP addresses on bonded interfaces.
Local Recovery Scenario
When a failure of an IP address is detected by the IP Recovery Kit, the resulting failure triggers the execution of the IP local recovery script. LifeKeeper will first attempt to bring the IP address back in-service on the current network interface. If the local recovery attempt fails, LifeKeeper will perform a failover of the IP resource and all dependent resources to a backup server.
