ip link set down dev eth2 down - works. But with this command
I also kill all ip-addresses and aliases that belongs to this device.
But need to kill just virtual_ipaddress.

How explain it, where the BUG ???

Well, I give it a try. I don't know about the internals of keepalived but I guess that it might only check for the link state which in your case would still be UP. You can check that if you do:

ip addr del dev eth2 && ip link set dev eth2 down

If it works then, this was the problem, if not, I'm sure Alexandre will happily help you.

Maybe you can send an 'ip link show dev eth0' and 'ip addr show dev eth2' before and after your test.
