"ip sla" usage

I am trying to setup "Dynamic Failover with IP SLA" per the instructions detailed here: http://www.ciscoblog.com/archives/2008/08/dynamic_failove.html

I am getting an error when I try to enter the number one (or anything after 'ip sla')

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Do I need to turn something on first, before I use this?

Thanks,

ER

Re: "ip sla" usage

Always rely on the online help. If you add the monitor option, you will be able to complete the command:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipsla/command/reference/sla_02.html#wp1027930

IP SLA configuration varies among IOS releases. Either rely on the online help or hit the IOS documentation for any variation of the command.

Re: "ip sla" usage

I see. I did try that.

This is what I typed...

*ip sla monitor 1*

which brings me into a config mode...

Not sure what to enter once I get in there.

Re: "ip sla" usage

After typing ip sla monitor 1 you will enter into the SLA subconfiguration, please take a moment and read the documentation from your IOS at:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_4/ip_sla/configuration/guide/hsla_c.html

Here is a sample config from that page:

ip sla monitor 6

type echo protocol ipIcmpEcho 172.29.139.134 source-ipaddr 172.29.139.132

frequency 300

request-data-size 28

tos 160

timeout 2000

tag SFO-RO

ip sla monitor schedule 6 life forever start-time now
