I think I hear what your saying.

I am using / doing LVS-DR. The VIP is on the real server.

Should I not edit my /etc/ha.d/haresouces and

       ldirectord::ldirectord.cf         \
       IPaddr2::xyz.221.22.9/27/eth0/xyz.221.22.31 \
       IPaddr2::xyz.221.22.10/27/eth0/xyz.221.22.31 \

where /27 make 32?
