I am running vservers for years, and I had to migrate them from one
physical server to another.
I have a setup with a dummy interface (which I just read in the ML archive
I have replicated the setup, but I see martian packets on the public
interface, the destination of which being the private IP (10.12.12.2) of
one of the vservers (activng as a reverse http proxy to other vservers):
[1563573.536936] martian source 10.12.12.2 from $PUBLIC, on dev eth0
[1563573.536939] ll header: e8:40:f2:0a:e9:4e:6c:9c:ed:bb:6f:80:08:00
e8:40:f2:0a:e9:4e is the MAC address of the public interface
My understanding is that 6c:9c:ed:bb:6f:80 is the MAC address of the last
hop before the server, and that this is an IPv4 packet .
*After* seeing the problem and reading the mailing list archive, I have set
arp_ignore to 1 on all interfaces and arp_announce to 2 on the public
When I shutdown the vserver I saw these message, I didn't see the martian
packets anymore, but had this:
arpwatch: ethernet mismatch 188.8.131.52 6c:9c:ed:bb:bd:80
Do you have any suggestion as to what I can do to debug this?
tcpdump does not give more info (I guess the packet is dropped before
tcpdump sees it), relaxing the rp_filter (to 0) setting didn't change this.
# uname -a

Thanks in advance!
