Master Firewall is not accessible until slave is rebooted
I have a master/slave setup . Syncing is working fine. When master goes down slave takes its place and when master gets back it automatically takes the slave place. But suddenly there is an issue, When master gets down and slave starts working. Slave is not switching to master Firewall automatically using VirtualIP. I have to restart the slave Firewall , only then master Firewall is accessible.
Do you mean the CARP VIPs remain master on the secondary node?
And backup on the primary node?
The primary may have demoted itself if an interface went down. Check the advskew value in the
