Subject:        [gpfsug-discuss] ces - change preferred host for an IP 
without actually moving the IP
Sent by:        gpfsug-discuss-bounces at spectrumscale.org

Can I change the preferred server for a ces address without actually 
moving the IP? 
In my case the IP already moved to the new server due to a failure on a 
second server.  Now I would like the IP to stay even if the other server 
gets active again: I first want to move a test address only.  But ‘mmces 
address move’ denies to run as the address already is on the server I want 
to make the preferred one.
I also didn’t find where this address assignment is stored, I searched in 
the files available from ccr.
Thank you,
