Re: [Linux-cluster] Set packet src address to a cluster-managed IP

Hi Elliott,

I had a similar problem with my license-server cluster (for IBM 
Rational ClearCase). As we found out that IBM's license daemon
for ClearCase behaves very badly (sends response packets with the
IP address of the NIC instead of the cluster-ip) and IBM was not
able to provide a fix for that, we decided to use iptables to 
rewrite the addresses.

For that I've added iptables servcie to my cluster configuration (only 
starts on that node that has the license daemon active) and configured 

iptables -A PREROUTING -d <cluster-ip>/32 -j DNAT --to-destination <NIC-ip>
iptables -a POSTROUTING -s <NIC-ip>/32 -j SNAT --to-source <cluster-ip>

This configuration of iptables on both nodes and (as said) iptables active
only where license daemon is active and everything works fine for us :)
