Last(!!!!) mail:

ensure that the last hop in front of the Alteon cluster is realizing
the new MAC of the VIPs after the failover (old is 00:60:cf:48:8b:1e
and new should be 00:60:cf:48:75:5e). You should think about
configuring VRRP on top of the virtual servers if you do not see the
MAC changing.
