Hi Erol,

 Do not use vmware  guests as LVS directors: as soon as free bandwidth 
goes down the directors start to failover due to missing sync packages. 
I was running this setup at the very beginning but then I moved the 
directors to physical servers.
Vmware can be fine for real servers until the vmware itself is not 
overloaded, in such case real servers will go in and out of the LVS 
cluster due to check mechanism.
