Are you guys really sure this works?  I have tried CARP in the most
simple setup I could.  I have two machines, one network card in each
machine, and I run a crossover between them.  I have tried a pair of
"SMC 83C170 (EPIC/100)" cards, a pair of "Intel 82557" cards, and a
pair of "Compaq Netelligent 10/100 TX" cards.  For the most part, when
I configure everything and do a tcpdump I see the VRRPv2 announce from
vhid 1 and from vhid 2... sounds like everything is working, but both
boxes insist on keeping a status of MASTER on CARP0. My hostname.carp0
looks like this on both machines (with differing vhids):
inet vhid 1 pass blah
What are the chances that all three sets of cards have broken/partial
multicast support?
