Symptoms

Failover multicast configuration does not work when configured with a unicast IP address. Although this is an invalid configuration, the system does not prevent it.

Impact

Failover multicast configuration does not work.

Conditions

Specify a unicast IP address under 'Failover Multicast Configuration' for network failover in high availability configurations.

Workaround

Specify a multicast IP address under 'Failover Multicast Configuration' for network failover.

Fix Information

The system now prevents specifying a unicast IP address when configuring multicast failover.
