VRRP Source Address does not display properly if multicast src ip is empty.


Dear members.

Filed http://bugzilla.vyos.net/show_bug.cgi?id=202

set interfaces ethernet eth0 vrrp vrrp-group 100 virtual-address
set interfaces ethernet eth0 vrrp vrrp-group 100 description test
vyos@vyos:~$ show vrrp detail 
Use of uninitialized value in printf at /opt/vyatta/share/perl5/Vyatta/VRRP/OPMode.pm line 249.
Interface: eth0
  Group: 100
  State:                        MASTER
  Last transition:              8s

  Source Address:               
  Priority:                     100
  Advertisement interval:       1 sec
  Authentication type:          none
  Preempt:                      enabled

  VIP count:                    1
      printf "  Source Address:\t\t%s\n",

Please let me know which is proper fix.

  1. Source address should be display eth0 address.
  2. This configuration is invalid should commit fail.

And does anyonoe knows how to get eth0 address in perl script?

I have the same issue with v1.1.5, is this been fixed?


in last version 1.1.6 - same problem
i check it with wireshark - if enable rfc-compatibility - no source address sent by Vyos.
