ipconfig/all showing secondary CARP device interface IP as DHCP server address instead of the VIP - is this as expected?
I am examining our CARP setup and just want to check what I'm seeing isn't a configuration failure.
ipconfig/all shows VIP as default gateway and DNS server but the secondary CARP interface for DHCP server.
I found this question on the forum. A reply states the pool is shared between the pair.
This link from the ISC documentation says the same thing i.e. that the pool is shared.
I can see that leases are sync'd. All looks good, all working fine.
However, I just want to confirm for sure that I should be seeing a physical interface IP as the DHCP server instead of the VIP?
NOTE: This question was originally in the DHCP section but I moved it here because it seemed the better location.
You might get an answer from the primary or the secondary. The interface address - not the CARP VIP - will be the DHCP server shown.
Thanks for the confirmation that the behaviour is as expected. Very much appreciated.
