Hi Lars,

They don't share the pool if they are both up and running. Actually you can also put the split statement to 0 or 1 I think, and all the address will be on one server until it goes down.

Note that if you do that, put all IPs on one server, your clients must be able to reach any of the servers if one goes down.

This I because I plan to have a pools down to just 1 IP address and thus
if the secondary has handed out the lease how does it show on the

Links to state transition diagrams and descriptions on failover setups
are appreciated to clear my understanding.
