I want to use BGP failover on three VMs. I installed a BGP daemon (BIRD) on the local VMs to achieve this and created a NIC with the floating IP:
However, I cannot 'up' the network interface on all VMs at the same time, but that is the behavior I need for BGP failover.
I get the following error:
[root@proxy2 network-scripts]# ifup eth0:0 ERROR : [/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-eth] Error, some other host (xxx) already uses address xxx.
How can I disable this check?
