How do I configure an IPsrcaddr resource to modify a non-default route in a Pacemaker cluster?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I need an IPsrcaddr resource to update the route to a particular destination or in a particular routing table, but it's updating the default route instead.
  • The preferred source IP address needs to be a VIP address when talking to a VIP address.
  • When using an IPsrcaddr resource, the route table still shows the primary address as the preferred source address when the VIP is the destination.
  • The IPsrcaddr resource agent is not updating the local route table in a Pacemaker cluster.
  • An Oracle database is receiving local connections from the primary IP address rather than from the virtual IP address.
