[lvs-users] LVS-DR in HA mode, VIP not being assigned to eth0:0 on boot

I recently performed a new setup of LVS using DR for a pair of web servers in streamlined, high-availability/capacity mode. To get around the ARP issue, I assigned the VIP to the localhost adaptor (lo:0). In the past this has not been a problem, but for some reason the active director in this pair won't assign the VIP from lo:0 to eth0:0 on first boot until I kick the heartbeat service several times.

Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

        # uname -a
        Linux [DIRECTOR1 REDACTED] 2.6.18-164.6.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Nov 3 16:12:36 EST 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Also, what other information is needed for a better diagnosis?
