oh I see, but well.. when you run apache, snmpd or anything else, it handles
such situation pretty carefully, no?

the idea is one more ip address is added dynamically as an alias to physical

ifconfig eth0:0 xx.xx.xx.xx netmsk yy.yy.yy.yy

then I can connect to http, snmp, etc.

when i use wildcard interface for nsd, static IP address works fine, but not
that "dynamic" one.

the problem is: I can't specify it on both machines, since it can belong to
the only one. it's handled dynamically by CARP. and when I put non-existent
IP-address, NSD failes to start while binding to non-existent IP.
