HA/CARP DHCP Lease Hand Out
I currently have HA enabled with CARP and I noticed which may be normal but after my CARP was active on my backup pf node for a short period before my master taking over again, I noticed some of devices are showing the DHCP server IP of my backup node interface IP when i run ipconfig /all and if i do a release and renew, it will jump back to my master pf node interface IP. Is this normal and does this effect anything?
Status -> DHCP Leases on my nodes show My State: normal and Peer State: normal
ALso right now i just noticed my cell phone showing online/active on both master and backup nodes (same IP) Checked my phone network info and i can see it has a dhcp IP of my backup node.
Currently CARP is Master on my Primary pf node and CARP is on Backup for my secondary pf node
My enabled DHCP Server settings have my CARP VIP for the DNS, Gateway and for the Failover peer IP, i have it set to the interface IP of the backup node. (In the case my LAN interface IP) When i saved this, my backup node automatically picked these settings up and applied the peer IP back to the master node IP.
As for the hardware, I have the same interface setup on both units
Anyone have any input in this?
