A !. You right.  It shows up there. I was always configuring lvs so VIP is on 
additional interface (like eth0:1), so ifconfig was perfectly capable of 
showing it. This one have it on eth0 (and if I'm right, this is achieved by 
haresource file), so ifconfig is not showing it. I've learned something new as 
every day :)
Out of interest, is there any difference between these two ways ?? Pros and 
cons ??
