Select the check box to allow a node with a better priority to initiate a failover for a redundancy group.
Note: By default, this feature is disabled. When disabled, a node with a better priority does not initiate a redundancy group failover (unless some other factor, such as faulty network connectivity identified for monitored interfaces, causes a failover).
Gratuitous ARP Count
Enter a value. The range is 1 through 16. The default is 4.
This specifies the number of gratuitous Address Resolution Protocol requests that a newly elected primary sends out on the active redundant Ethernet interface child links to notify network devices of a change in primary role on the redundant Ethernet interface links.
Enter the node priority number as 0 for a redundancy group.
Enter the node priority number as 1 for a redundancy group.
