Master becomes Slave and Slave becomes Master



  • Hi at all,

    I have the following configuration:

    FW1:
    interface LAN 192.168.0.2 /24
    interface WAN 10.0.1.60 /16
    Interface Sync 192.168.1.1 /24

    FW2:
    interface LAN 192.168.0.3 /24
    interface WAN 10.0.1.61 /16
    interface Sync 192.168.1.2 /24

    Virtuelle IP 192.168.0.1 /24

    both machines are running on 1.2.1-RC1

    I configured the machines like described in the tutorial http://pfsense.icehosting.com/tutorials/carp/carp-cluster-new.htm.

    The virtual LAN IP is reachable and the failover works fine. The problem now is that I set the Advertising Frequency on FW1 to 0 and at FW2 to 101 and if both machines are online always FW2 becomes master.

    Do you have any suggestions what´s wrong?

    Thx

    Felix



  • I got the reason why it didn´t work:

    The LAN Interface of FW1 was a 10 mbit network card! Until I put in a 100 mbit network card it works fine!
