CARP sync does not work with renamed admin account



  • Hi

    We've recently upgraded some of our pfsense firewall clusters from 1.2.3 to 2.0-RC3 and have noticed that CARP sync does not work when using a renamed admin user.

    Our standard practice was to rename the default 'admin' user to 'pfadmin' and use this user to log on to the web configurator. This worked fine with pfsense 1.2.3, but no longer works with 2.0-RC3.

    We did also set the 'username' field on the CARP settings to 'pfadmin', but that setting does not seem to be taken into account.

    When renaming 'pfadmin' back to 'admin' in the configuration file /conf/config.xml and rebooting the firewall, CARP sync works again.

    Regards

    Glenn



  • I think this was fixed in latest snapshots just for this case!
    Now you can define the different user under carp sync settings as well

    Can you be specific with the snapshot version and where the setting is? I can't seem to find the setting.

    However, changing the username back to admin fixed my issue so things are great again.
