Syntax Question

I'm doing some failover testing in a primary / secondary configuration.
I'm trying to set the primary into partner down mode.  I've read through
the man pages, and I think I've got it nailed down, but I'd like to be


I've modified my dchdp.leases file from:


failover peer "dhcp-failover" state {

  my state normal at 3 2008/03/05 20:18:08;

  partner state normal at 3 2008/03/05 17:53:37;





failover peer "dhcp-failover" state {

  my state partner-down;

  partner state shutdown;



Then restarted ISC.  It does start up alright.   Is this correct process
for putting it into partner down?
