What can I use for a Virtual IP (VIP) with SoftNAS Private HA?

If you are trying to configure SoftNAS virtual IP based HA and are confused as to what you can use for a VIP their is a simple answer. The VIP IP can be any IP address that is not within the overall CIDR of the VPC. For example if your VPC CIDR is set to any IP address that does not fall within that CIDR will work as a VIP address.  

To ensure your IP is outside the CIDR block is simple. Ensure that the third IP starts with a different octet. Starting with a different octet means that if your VPC range is, the VIP must not start with 172, it must start with something else, for example: 10 or 12 or 175.
