CARP Interface for Virtual IPs bringing down server…



  • Hello,

    Perhaps I should have posted this here in this forum section but initially I was unsure what the exact problem was.  Through process of elimination I've determined that using CARP Virtual IPs (I have to use this to pull my 5 IPs from the 2Wire RG since it requires a 1 to 1 mapping of the IP to a unique MAC address) along with multicast (IGMP Proxy) will bring the box down shortly after a reboot.  The box is running 2.01.

    I suspect perhaps somehow the VIFs are being flooded with multicast traffic but I have no way to confirm.  If I disable the CARP interfaces the box performs just fine.

    Any ideas?  More information can be found below..
