Keepalived cant find one of my interfaces

I have just installed a new server (Ubuntu 14.04) to start testing our keepalived configurations, which work fine on (Ubuntu 12.04)

We do not assign the public IP on the eth1 interface, we allow keepalived to do that to preserve public IP's in our environment.

This works on the 12.04 server


# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
    address x.x.x.x
    netmask x.x.x.x

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static


vrrp_script chk_haproxy {
  script    "/usr/bin/killall -0 haproxy"
  interval  2

vrrp_script chk_stunnel {
  script    "/usr/bin/killall -s 0 -r 'stunnel[4]?'"
  interval  2

global_defs {
  notification_email {
  notification_email_from someone@somewhere.com
  smtp_server x.x.x.x
  smtp_connect_timeout 30
  router_id somehost

vrrp_instance VI_01 {
  interface                 eth0
  state                     MASTER
  virtual_router_id         1

  authentication {
    auth_type PASS
    auth_pass somepas

  track_script {

  virtual_ipaddress {
    x.x.x.x/x dev eth1

  virtual_routes {
    default via x.x.x.x dev eth1  


However, on the 14.04 system, when put in place with a copy and paste (just modifying IPs for a new subnet) keepalived says the interface queue is empty and will declare eth1 as a missing interface.

Is this a change in behavior for ipvs in Ubuntu 14.04 ? An interface with no IP is dropped from being usable?

    • This can be ignored, it was my check scripts failing on haproxy startup. The service was doing exactly what it should be doing.

Warm tip !!!
