I have upgraded my hot standby backup director to a 2.6.17 kernel, from kernel
sources. I am using ultramonkey on debian, without local node. There are 2
realservers, a primary linux director and a hot standby director, all on
When I stop heartbeat on my primary directorI can see that the hot standby
starts, it starts ldirectord, which finds the realservers and inserts them into
However connections from outside are ignored, and not passed onto the
IPVS is enabled in the kernel at build time, and ipvsadm works. I have
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1 in sysctl.conf.
Does anyone know if this is the right line to use for a 2.6 kernel? Or if there
is any other thing I need to do with my 2.6 kernel to make it work?
This is the output of #ip addr sh eth0:
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,10000> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 1000
link/ether 00:11:09:ee:db:a3 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
Does this look right? The last two lines are not present with a 2.4 kernel,
which works fine on the primary director. (192.168.0.240 is the VIP).
