  5. In the Name column, locate the relevant virtual address and in the State column, view its state.
  6. Click the name of the virtual address you want to view.
    This shows the properties of that virtual address.

  10. In the Name column, click the name of the relevant virtual address.

  11. From the
    Traffic Group
    list, select the traffic group that you created on this device, that is, the traffic group that contains the floating self IP address of this (local) device.
    Once this device is processing traffic, if the specified traffic group fails over to another device, traffic destined for this device will target the newly-active device.
  12. Ensure that the
    Traffic Group
    list is set to
    traffic-group-1
    .
    traffic-group-1
    is the default floating traffic group on the system.
  13. Select the
    Spanning
    check box.
    This setting adds this floating virtual address to all floating traffic groups in the device group, ensuring that all devices in the device group can receive traffic from the ECMP-enabled upstream router.
  14. For the
    Route Advertisement
    setting, select the check box.
    When you enable this setting, the BIG-IP system advertises a route to this virtual address for other routers to use for forwarding traffic to this device.
  15. Clear the
    ARP
    check box.
    This disables the Advanced Resolution Protocol (ARP).
  16. Select the check box to the left of the virtual address name.
  17. Click the
    Enable
    button.
  18. In the Name column, locate the virtual address you want to disable.

    button.
