Anyone using Load Balancing on a 3000 Concentrator?

I tried it yesterday and backed off after I perceived intermittent communication failures between the peers. Fear and angst overcame me with msgs like:

LBSSF got unknown peer message;

LBSSF received GRAT-ARP from duplicate master;

LBSSF master peer[x.x.x.x] is not answering HELLO;

Leisurely, review and correlation, between the logs today, did consistently show one side backing off of master and one side staying master, when duplicate masters were found.

The unknown peer messages still concern me. They all came from the master side. They all time correlate to the master box itself coming back up after a reboot. None were noted on the slave side. I got them whether I was encrypting the VCA comm channel,or not.

The HELLO timeout happened once and probably was legitimate.

Anyone else have any experiences, good or bad?

Here is the link for load-balancing in VPN 3000:

I have made it working in our Lab with one 3030 and 3060 concentrators without a problem. They are using same version of the code, at that moment : 3.5.1

I have done a bug searching for your issue, that could be any known issues.

Please double check your config with above URL , if the problem is still there, please advise what version of code you are using and more debug information. I will do further search for you.
