V2: CARP on Vmware without putting vswitchs/VDS into promiscuous mode


i'm posting here because cannot comment the original post  (
I tryed this configuration today ( carp on pfsense 2.3.4_1 and vmware esxi 6.0.0,3620759)
and noticed that the required configuration for the distributed switch on VMWare does not require Mac Address Changes to be enabled.

Promiscuosu mode: Accept
MAC Address Change: Reject
Forged Transmits: Accept

Can anyone confirm this?

I have come accross the same thing.

The problem i have is when pinging the 2 carp boxes ping is fine.  When i ping the virtual ip address i get ping drops.]

I'm struggling with vmware and pfsense.
