Hi, this is probably a newbie question but I've searched everywhere for the 
answer with no luck.
I inherited an LVS setup with an like the following (IPs intentionally 
virtual vip_r_30 {
     active = 1
     address = eth0:40
     vip_nmask =
     load_monitor = none
     quiesce_server = 0
virtual vip_r_31 {
     active = 1
     address = eth0:41
     vip_nmask =
     load_monitor = none
     quiesce_server = 0

That's just a small section of the config file.
Anyone know how I can control each one of those entries independently? I want 
to bring down vip_r_31 which shows as eth0:41 when doing ifconfig but I read I 
cant use that command or ifup/ifdown.
What command can I then use to bring down just eth0:41? (ifdown if it were just 
another alias)
What about making it active again? (ifup if it were just another alias).
The setup I inherited is command line only so I can't use any GUI to accomplish 
Any help is greatly appreciated.
