Information in this document applies to any platform.


Although keepalived is started upon instance startup, keepalived fails to bind the Virtual IP address defined in keepalived.conf with the following message.


- /var/log/message (log message from keeplalived process)


Apr 11 11:55:54 vm01 Keepalived_vrrp: ip address associated with VRID not present in received packet :
Apr 11 11:55:54 vm01 Keepalived_vrrp: one or more VIP associated with VRID mismatch actual MASTER advert
Apr 11 11:55:54 vm01 Keepalived_vrrp: bogus VRRP packet received on bond1 !!!
Apr 11 11:55:54 vm01 Keepalived_vrrp: VRRP_Instance(otd-vrrp-router-1) ignoring received advertisment...



You don't see the Virtual IP address under the interface specified in the keepalived.conf.

[root@vm01 config]# ip addr show

3: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 1000
  link/ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx brd xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
  inet brd scope global eth1
