Bug Description

Binary package hint: keepalived

Running keepalived on 10.04 LTS (running fully updated) throws SIOCGMIIREG errors, it seems to be related to the e1000e driver.
I compiled the latest keepalived version (1.2.2) from source and this resolves the problem.

# dpkg -l | grep keepalived
ii keepalived 1.1.17-2ubuntu1 Failover and monitoring daemon for LVS clust

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to report bugs and trying to make Ubuntu better.

Unfortunately,. I've been unable to reproduce this error. However, after some online research this problem appears to be with version 1.1.17 and maybe 1.1.18. Starting from 1.1.19 this seems to be fixed. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to exist a patch to fix this issue specifically but rather just to use a newer upstream version according to what I've read.

For now, I'll be marking this bug as incomplete until a bit more research is done in the issue and maybe finding the appropriate patch in upstream.

A minimal patch that resolves this needs to be identified for it to be fixed in lucid.

I also got the same messages:
Keepalived_vrrp: SIOCGMIIREG on eth2 failed: Input/output error
Keepalived_healthcheckers: SIOCGMIIREG on eth2 failed: Input/output error

on this nic, even though I'm not using it for keepalived:
1c:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82572EI Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Copper) (rev 06)

The problem is that I got about 300000 error msgs/day in syslog, so it would fill up the syslog database.

Upgrading to 1.1.20 from upstream fixes the problem.
