To replicate an Active Failover policy in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Traffic Management, you will need to note your current Dyn Active Failover configurations and then create a new Traffic Management Failover Policy.
We recommend that upon acquiring an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure account, you begin replicating the Dyn Traffic Director service using the OCI traffic steering policies prior to delegating to the OCI nameservers.
To create a new Traffic Management Failover Policy in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, see “To create a Failover policy” in Managing Traffic Management Steering Policies.
