Pfsense beta4 reboots when I add a CARP Virtual IP address



  • Hi,

    I have tried to follow step by step the CARP cluster tutorial, but when I must add the virtual IP addres for CARP, pfsense reboots and dont' add the VIP.

    Is there anyone with the same problem?

    Greetings



  • Did you use the correct subnetmask for the VIP? With CARP the subnetmask should be the same like the real interfaces subnet. You shouldn't use /32 there. We have code in place that will prevent this in RC1.

    Yes, WAN interface and CARP VIP for WAN have /24 subnet mask both.



  • You need to use the same subnet as the real ip that exists on an interface.

    This has been fixed post beta4.

    If you are running a full installation then run this from option 8 on the console:

    cvs_sync.sh releng_1

    I was doing so.

    The WAN IP I'm using is 192.168.3.91/24 and the VIP I'm adding for CARP is 192.168.3.90/24

    I'll try with other devices, because I'm using 2 USB Ethernet adapters which use rue module for the SYNC interfaces.

    It was the USB adapter. I've tried the same configuration with 2 soekris net4801 and it works.



  • Ah, makes sense. We are debugging usb issues atm (drivers AXE and AUE) and thompsa is working on driver improvements. Those are known to have issues atm. These don't have to do with CARP only but happen when configuring other options too.

    My adapters use RUE driver if it helps.



  • hm, this somehow starts to look like more general driver unrelated issues then. I'll forward this to thompsa.
