Now look the following config:
If the Action Queue Type is set to linked list (and thus the action executed asynchronously), the other two actions will never be executed - because the async action always "succeeds".
There are two ways to solve this situation:
1) do run the action synchronously -- depending on your needs, this may be a solution or not
2) if you need to run it async, you need to define a new ruleset, which includes the config WITHOUT the async processing. Then, use omruleset to execute the newly defined ruleset as whole asynchronously. This is obviously a bit more complex, but will do what you need.
I hope this resolves some confusion about the failover functionality (and, yes, a better config language would make this less painful -- hopefully we will finally be able to write one ;)).
