Reading the arp_filter settings it does match what we're experiencing, but I've never seen it before, but haven't ever been looking for it. Maybe because this is SIP/RTP traffic vs normal data traffic which when the switch switches the MAC <-> IP ARP mappings the voice traffic drops. You wouldn't noticed that on normal data traffic. arpwatch is picking up the flip flops. > You note that eth1 is on a 169.xx IP, and earlier in your email, you note > that it's non-routable.

You're right. We're using 18.104.22.168-2 when we shouldn't be! It should be either in the ranges below or 169.254.x.x.

For two DRBD interfaces this will be fine but will need an umount or schedule reboot for the pair. Thanks, Gavin.
