Do not reuse VHIDS!

  • Just found a common problem that people are doing.

    You need a unique VHID PER ip address.  Don't resuse the VHIDS!

    Code is in place to prevent this in future versions but be aware from anything previous to RC2g does not check.

  • If you accidentally DO reuse VHIDS, chances are your box is going to core every boot.  To manually fix this without reinstalling:

    1.  Disable all NIC's
    2.  Reboot into a shell, manually edit /cf/conf/config.xml and remove the corresponding VIP that has a duplicate VHID.
    3.  rm /tmp/config.cache
    4.  Reboot with NIC's enabled.
