Kemp loadbalaning priority based memeber activation


I have a Kemp 5400 loadmaster, and I want to configure "priority based member activation" (which is used by F5 loadbalancer), for the purpose of:
1. I have 3 servers on the primary site and 3 other on the secondary site
2. I want to round-robin requests only to the 3 servers of the primary site
3. In case of 3 of them go down, I want kemp to automatically activate the other 3 servers of the secondary site and round-robing requests to them

Is this solution possible with kemp? I know that on F5 loadbalancer this is possible and its called "priority based member activation"

Thank you

I would suggest that the best option is to use our GEO (GSLB) functionality to load balance between the sites. This included as standard with your KEMP LM-5400. You can set the primary site to have priority and if all the servers at this site go down the GEO will then redirect traffic to the secondary site.
