Forced Server Level Fail over?

Hi,

does anyone know how to force a server level fail over? I know this can be done for UniInt fail over by changing the UFO Active ID (I use a calculation in PI AF to do that).  

 

But I'm looking for a similar method for Server Level. I've tried changing the values of WatchDog tags using a calc to no success. 

 

is this possible?

 

Why am I doing this?  My two interfaces are connecting to Gateways. The Gateways are actively running regardless if the underlying OPC server is running or serving data. So I need to monitor data from the actual server and then force the Server level fail over. (Or that is the idea I'm trying right now.)

Thanks,

Jared
