What is the proper procedure for manual failover from Master to Slave?



  • We would like to perform maintenance on our Master -

    What is the proper procedure for manual failover from Master to Slave such that the slave becomes master and there is no disruption of service?

    If you are shutting the system down, it will switch automatically, you don't have to do anything on your own.

    If you want to force it and leave the master box online, you can disable CARP on the Master under Status > CARP.

    Just to be sure I understand this correctly…

    If I turn off CARP on the master box, the slave will go online with all VIP's? And once I re-enable CARP on the former master, it will again assume the VIP's?
