Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 434653
virtual ip not restored to lo:0
Last modified: 2008-06-06 15:37:08 EDT
Description of problem:
When using a streamlined load-balancing architecture with LVS and heartbeat (the
load balancer also acts as a real server), and switching the active server or
shutting down heartbeat on the node the following errors are logged:
lrmd: info: RA output: (R_VIP:stop:stderr) lo:0: warning: name may be invalid
IPaddr: ERROR: Insufficient arguments to add_interface: 192.168.1.222 lo:0 lo:0
255.255.255.255 broadcast 192.168.1.255
Then the virtual IP on lo:0 is not restored and shut down hangs. Killing lrmd
with -9 will let heartbeat shutdown but then the node is still missing the VIP.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've attached a patch for IPaddr that was posted to the heartbeat list that
resolves the problem. Credit to Thomas Baumann for the patch.

ok. You think this is worth applying now in fedora or just waiting for upstream
to pick it up?
I also have a 2.1.3 update I need to push out, so I could do it at the same time
thanks for the patch!
Thanks for the super quick response!
I didn't know that heartbeat was moving to 2.1.3 for Fedora 8 so I don't want to
add extra work if it will automatically get included in the not-too-distant
future. The actual change that went into heartbeat-devel is here:
Well, 2.1.3 is already out... I just haven't updated fedora to the new release
yet. This fix will be in the next (as yet unreleased) version: 2.1.4
I will look at updating to 2.1.3 and adding this patch in there this week...
Sorry for the delay.
heartbeat-2.1.3-1.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
Sorry for the delay here...
I have built 2.1.3 + the patch for this issue. It should show up in
updates-testing in the next few days. The updates system will add a note here
when it's pushed out.
If you want to try it out sooner, you can get it direct from the buildsystem at:
Please let me know if you spot any problems with it.
heartbeat-2.1.3-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update heartbeat'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F8/FEDORA-2008-2267
Everything is working like it should. Thanks for including this patch!
Excellent. If you get a chance, can you say it works for you in the update link
If it gets 3 "works" points, it can go to stable...otherwise it will be a week
or two before it's released to stable. :)
heartbeat-2.1.3-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
This should be all fixed, closing now.
