Carp switching from primary to secondary



  • We have a carp setup with several VIPs.
    The sync interface is on its own nic with a direct connect cable to the secondary.

    A few times now the secondary became the master.
    I was logged into the primary via the carp IP at the time.

    How to do I troubleshoot this kind of thing?

    WAN is igb2
    HA sync is igb0

    this from the system log on primary.

  • No suggestions?

    It cant be network traffic on Sync interface since its a direct connect.

    Not sure where to look and how to fix this.

    What the correct procedure to swing  the interface back to primary?
    Last time I just rebooted the secondary but it seems a bit crude.
