Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-10074) VR Failover causes failed VPC routers
Date Wed, 13 Sep 2017 20:14:00 GMT
Tim Gipson created CLOUDSTACK-10074:

             Summary: VR Failover causes failed VPC routers
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-10074
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Virtual Router
    Affects Versions:
         Environment: CentOS 7 for management, KVM hypervisors
            Reporter: Tim Gipson
         Attachments: iptables_broken.txt, iptables_working.txt, management-server20170913-2pm.log,
VR_backup_cloud.log, VR_master_cloud.log

I’ve found what I think could be a possible issue with the redundant VPC router pairs in
Clousdstack.  The issue was first noticed when routers were failing over from master to backup.
 When the backup router became master, everything continued to work properly and traffic flowed
as normal.  However, when it failed from the new master back to the original master the virtual
router stopped allowing traffic through any network interfaces and any failover after that
resulted in virtual routers that were not passing traffic.

I can reproduce this behavior by doing a manual failover (logging in and issuing a reboot
command on the router) from master to backup and then back to the original master.  From what
I can tell, the iptables rules on the router are somehow modified during the failover (or
a manual reboot) in such a way as to make them completely nonfunctional.  I did a side-by-side
comparison of the iptables rules before and after a failover (or a manual reboot) and there
are definite differences.  Sometimes rules are changed, sometimes they are duplicated, and
I’ve even found that some rules are missing completely out of iptables.
