I seem to be having a problem with the LB side of things.
with-haproxy-heartbeat-on-debian-lenny-p2 you have said that
As lb2 is the passive load balancer, it should not be listening on the virtual IP address as long as lb1 is up. We can check that with:
ip addr sh eth0
but the result shows both lb1 and lb2 are listening to the vIP
Please can you help.
