DHCP & Carp



  • Same config for LAN & OPT3 (except ip addresses of course):

    DHCP on LAN works without problem with CARP/failover

    DHCP on OPT4 does the following when CARP/failover is enabled:

    3times:
    dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 192.1.1.100 from xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx via em4: not responding (recovering)

    several times:
    dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx via em4: peer holds all free leases

    Error msg on both machines, without failover ip it works.



  • btw. dhcp leases for the lan segment sync to both fws, but the status puzzles me:

    dhcp_lan (LAN) recover 2014/09/29 18:37:09 unknown-state 2014/09/29 18:37:09
    dhcp_opt3 (GUESTS) recover 2014/09/29 18:37:09 unknown-state 2014/09/29 18:37:09

    except the timestamp same on both machines
