I only can find the reference for windows-based OS such CCM4.x and Unity, failed to find out any reference for Linux-based.

Hi,

The command to enable failover is..

set network failover enable.

All you need is to configure eth0 with an IP address. when you enable failover, the IP address of eth0 will be applied to eth1.

After you enable failover, a new interface will be formed called bond 0. This interface then becomes the virtual interface, so when one of the [hysical interface goes down, the virtual interface will stay up but will reference the only active/up interface

See attached a screen shot a ccm enabled with failover...look ath eth0 IP and eth1
