Enable a Virtual Service VIP on All Interfaces

Overview

Typically, a virtual service is placed on one or more NICs, as determined by a list ascertained by the Avi Controller. However, the list may not include all SE interfaces. This feature enables placing the VIP on all NICs of the SEs in the SE group. This is especially useful when using the default gateway feature, wherein the back-end servers otherwise might never be able to reach the VIP placed on interfaces other than one set as their default gateway.

This feature is only relevant in conjunction with the IP routing/Default Gateway feature. In addition, the configuration of this knob (enable-to-disable/disable-to-enable) requires that all affected virtual services of the corresponding Service Engine Group and VRF are disabled.

Prior to Avi Vantage version 18.2.5, this feature is configured in the Service Engine Group as described below and is enabled by default in Active/Standby HA mode.

In Avi Vantage version 18.2.5 and later, this feature is configurable via Network Service. Refer to Network Service configuration page for more details.
