Operational notes

  • Jumbo frames are supported if they have been enabled for that VLAN. The VIP responds to ping requests if they are not fragmented and are not larger than the MTU.

  • Fragmented packets are not supported. All fragmented packets sent to a VIP are dropped and no response or error is sent.

  • All packets with IP options are dropped. Any ping options will work as long as they do not change to IP options.

  • ICMP requests other than echo requests are not supported.

  • If there are errors in packets sent to a VIP, for example,"TTL Invalid," no ICMP error packet is sent.
