Issue

  • How do I use a Virtual IP address as the source address of outgoing traffic?
  • In our cluster we have a floating VIP, but packets coming from the active node have the source of the node's real IP, not the virtual IP.

Environment

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux
  • Virtual IP address (floating VIP)
  • Red Hat High Availability Add-On (cluster suite) with rgmanager
