It makes sense to me -- there's nothing on the physical interface, so IPMP migrates the address back there rather than to a logical. The workaround would be to set a 0.0.0.0 -failover address on the physical interface. Address migration is a major wart in the IPMP design, and something that Clearview is in the process of disposing of. -- meem _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
