You can use management server vsx_util vsls command when running VSLS.

clusterXL_admin works just fine on VSX, just bear in mind to do all VSes if you run VSLS

else, I normally run cpstop 🙂 

Works like a charm

I have successfully used clusterXL_admin down in VSX. Make sure you are in the VS where you need to failover.

In Lab environment, I have also tried just taking the active physical node out of service (reboot, shutdown) and this also results in a graceful failover to backup node.

The failover works fine and all your active VS's will move to the standby node without traffic interruption.
