Testing the hardware-assisted takeover configuration

You can test the hardware-assisted takeover configuration with the cf hw_assist test command.

The cf hw_assist test command sends a test alert to the partner. If the alert is received the partner sends back an acknowledgment, and a message indicating the successful receipt of the test alert is displayed on the console.

  1. Enter the following command to test the hardware-assisted takeover configuration:cf hw_assist test
Depending on the message received from the cf hw_assist test command, you might need to reconfigure options so that the HA pair and the remote management card are operating.
