Opened: Oct 16, 2019 Severity: 2-Critical
Gratuitous ARPs (GARPs) are not sent out when moving a virtual-address from one floating traffic-group to another (e.g., from traffic-group-1 to traffic-group-2).
Application traffic does not immediately resume after the virtual-address is moved. Instead, the surrounding network devices have to ARP out for the IP address after reaching a timeout condition.
-- Moving a virtual-address from one floating traffic-group to another. -- The traffic-groups are active on different devices.
After moving the virtual-address, disable and then re-enable the ARP setting for the virtual-address. This forces GARPs to be sent out.
GARPs are sent out as expected.
