The load balancing was tested with one VIP pointing to 2 real-servers. It 
worked fine. Now we need to figure out how to get 2 different sets of 
machines with different VIPs to speak to each other through the LVS 
director. This is all being done it a test environment and we're currently 
limited on the number of development machines we have available. Due to that 
we could only put 1 RS to 1 VIP for the "realserver as client" testing.
