Description Lukas Herbolt 2014-03-17 12:59:34 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
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

Actual results:
arp table is not cleared 

Expected results:
arp table cleared

Additional info:
It is fixed in following mainstream patch.
