I'm having a really odd issue, and not sure quite how best to explain it. As far as I know my setup was working fine with 4.5, and the failover itself still works without a hitch, it just doesn't seem to want to fail back anymore.
If the master goes down (say for a reboot), CARP fails over to the secondary machine as normal, but when the master is back it doesn't fail back to it. If I force the carp interface down on the backup machine, it fails back over, but then as soon as I bring those interfaces back up, the BACKUP becomes master again. I find this strange since the BACKUP still has a much higher advskew. I end up rebooting the backup, which seems to put everything in its place. Very odd issue. Has anyone else encountered this?
