CARP backup shows master

  • I recently added another Netgate 2440 and wanted to setup CARP on it for failover.  To the best of my knowledge, I have everything configured correctly but CARP is showing MASTER on both nodes.

    The error I'm getting in the system log on my primary node is as follows:
    php-fpm[76972]: /rc.filter_synchronize: An error code was received while attempting XMLRPC sync with username admin - Code 5: Didn't receive 200 OK from remote server. (HTTP/1.0 301 Moved Permanently)

    From Status (CARP failover on primary)
    LAN@1 master  MASTER

    LAN@1 master  MASTER is the SYNC interface on the primary node is the SYNC on the secondary and they are directly connected through a cable on igb2

    I have a firewall rule on each server allowing all traffic from the Sync Net everywhere.

    In System/High Avail Sync, Syncrhonize States is set to on the primary node.

    I'm running version 2.2.6 and have auto-submitted a crash report for the bug when prompted.

    What is "moved permanently"?
    Is there a workaround for this bug or another configuration I could try?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

  • Answering my own question, the "moved permanently" error was caused by protocol mismatches.  I had HTTP enabled on my primary and HTTPS on the backup.

    Before proceeding, set the same admin user password and webConfigurator protocol (e.g. HTTPS) on each cluster node.

    This protocol is set at:  System/Advanced/Admin Access/Protocol
