why are you running ospfd? (presumably on the director).
What changes in your routing that isn't handled by send_arp

It was an original requirement sent down by our network admin to have
dynamic routing on all internal routers.

hmm, trying to remember your original post - I think you said you could watch the IPs being moved one by one, it was so slow. So ospfd, which I assume takes upto 90sec(?) to change over would be compatible with the timescale of your dynamic routing. If you changed everything over in 5 secs, then ospfd would be left in the dust?

These days, it just seems better to go with what has been working rather than to redesign the whole system.

ie you're happy to stay with ospfd?

We could probably be just as well off without the ospfd part of the picture however, it's working now and true to specification so it's pretty easy for us to troubleshoot.

it's now working with or without ospfd?

where is ospfd running, both directors and the routers?
