CARP & DHCP relay : dhcrelay started on both nodes ?



  • Hi,

    We're running a 2-node pfsense cluster (followed the howto).
    We also run DHCP relay on our VLAN interfaces.

    However, dhcrelay is started on both nodes.

    I'm by no means an expert, but shouldn't this be started only on the primary node, and only in case of a failover be started on the backup node ?
    Since the requests are going to 0.0.0.0, i think both nodes are picking up the requests now ?

    Also, on the log of the primary node I see messages like this :

    dhcrelay: packet to bogus giaddr 192.168.128.227.

    Which is the IP of the backup node for this subnet.



  • Yeah it should only run on the master. It does work running on both, though it really shouldn't.  bug ticket open on it.
