I have an server with single network interface configuration. For eg., eth0-public ip, lo-loopback.
Could you guide me how to assign the VIP (Single VIP that will failover to slave during failure of master) in EFM-3.1 configuration. I mean, with which interface VIP has to be assigned.
1. Configure new network inteface (eg., eth1) and assign VIP to eth1 (or)
2. With existing inteface (eth0) in which public IP has assigned with.
Which one is correct approach and recommended one?

The steps and details mentioned here are correct unlike the supported platforms details.
Both the approches are valid you can go ahead with whichever is feasible for you.
Hope this helps.
