Description of problem:
Normal: ServerA is holding VRRP managed address w.x.y.z, ServerB is backup for the address w.x.y.z.
ServerA is suspended, so that ServerB transitions to master.
ServerA is resumed, now both servers are masters for a little while. Then ServerB goes into standby.
At this point the ARP table still points at ServerB for the w.x.y.z address, but ServerB doesn't answer to this address anymore. This is quite bad.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
recover from failed/master to master/backup
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup master/backup environment
2. kill master
3. wait until failover
4. recover master
arp table is not cleared
arp table cleared
It is fixed in following mainstream patch.
Well aware of this. Will be fixed as part of rebase in RHEL6.6 (BZ#1052380).
