A blast from the past is always amusing…

I do enjoy it when I find something I've written that makes me think 'cool!' when I read it again:

This virtual name server node requires some out of the ordinary config to work, due to the way
VMWare's switches behave.  You'll need to set promiscous mode -> yes in the vDS portgroup config,
ensure the kernel patch in /fastnet/data/esx-carp.diff is applied and set net.inet.carp.drop_echoed=1
in /etc/sysctl.conf if you want CARP to behave as it should.
