Techniques are described herein for providing an innovative configuration model that requires a user to configure Virtual Internet Protocol (VIP) addresses in just one place, thus avoiding the possibilities of configuration error and also making the network infrastructure easy to deploy. For example, to configure four VIP addresses in a three-node cluster, state-of-the-art configuration models would require the user to touch/configure twelve values spanning across three appliances, which is cumbersome and error prone. By contrast, the configuration model described herein has just one touch point in the whole cluster.
