After reboot, network failover packets might be transmitted with an internal source address, on the 127/8 network.
If there are intervening firewalls or routers that drop packets with improper/unroutable source addresses, then the members of the device group cannot communicate on this channel.
This problem might occur if the members of a device service clustering (DSC)/high availability (HA) device group have management ports on different IP networks, so that a management-route is necessary for them to communicate.
Remove the management-route from tmsh, and add a static route to the Linux kernel routing table. For example: # tmsh delete sys management-route 10.208.101.0/24 # tmsh save sys config # echo "10.208.101.0/24 via 10.208.102.254 dev eth0" > /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0 # reboot
Network failover packets on the management interface now have the correct source-IP when device service clustering (DSC)/high availability (HA) device group have management ports on different IP networks, so that a management-route is necessary for them to communicate.
