IP Load Broker Failover?

» close window

The Question is:

I want to setup the Load Broker under TCPIP V5.0A for load balancing
in a cluster. TCPIP$LBROKER_CONF.TEMPLATE uses an example with
at least 7 nodes in a cluster.
Since our cluster has only two productive members (and a third one used to
keep the quorum) I see little sense in defining a "failover" as (quoting the
doc) "host to use if all other members are down", but deleting that line
leads to an error "res_update() failed: record not found" in the logfile.
Can I ignore this error or do I have to set  up some dummy address as failover?

The Answer is :

  The failover address is clearly expected...
