Install the two Datapower appliances with two different IP addresses. Create a VIP (Virtual IP address) that is in the same subnet as the two datapower appliances.
Log into the WebGUI of Datapower appliance A. Navigate to Network ->Ethernet Interface, click on the ethernet where Datapower A is installed. Navigate to the tab called: “Standby Control”
Configure Standby Control to look like to following, just replace your own VIP and Priority can be set to anything beteen 0-255 (it must just be bigger than Datapower B’s priority to be the active appliance)
Do the same for Datapower B, but change the priority to lower than Datapower A.
Now that your Active/Passive Cluster is up we will look at how to test an Active Passive Cluster.
