  • Accept: Set to application/xml

  • Content-Type: Set to application/xml

Request Body

The response contains XML content consisting of one conductor_redundancy_group element with the following elements.

Element Value Description
vip String

A valid ipv4 address. This address is the “cluster ID” for the two Conductor nodes.

This address must be an address on your network that is never allocated to any other host.

vrid Integer

The virtual router ID, a number from 1-254.

This ID must not conflict with any other instance of keepalived (or another (Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol)VRRP-based service) that is running on your network.

To check for conflicting VRRP services, use:

sudo tcpdump vrrp

If you see VRRP advertisement packets, do not use the listed VRIDs.

name String Choose a name.


The response repeats back the data that you posted with the addition of the following.

  • id: The newly assigned ID for the Conductor redundancy group.

  • enabled: This setting is always "false" on a newly created group to indicate that Conductor redundancy is not yet enabled.

  • product_name: This setting is always “conductor_live.”

The response is identical to the response to a GET Conductor Redundancy Group. For an example, see GET: Get the Attributes of the Conductor Redundancy Group.



This request creates one Conductor redundancy group that has the VIP and the VRID 2.
