Title: Adding New VIP’s Causes CARP to Flap before Clicking Apply Changes
Post by: Bigozz on February 07, 2018, 12:32:10 pm
Hi All,

I have a weird one here. Currently I have 2 x Pfsense firewalls sitting a HA Cluster. I have a historic VIP’s set up that work well.

When adding a new VIP prior to clicking “Apply Changes” it causes the failover to our other firewall then back again. It appears to be flapping back and forward.

I see packet loss due to this. When we hit apply it stops.

Any idea or thoughts?

I would assume the changes to the VIP would not apply until I hit “Apply Changes”. 

I am currenlty running
