[pgpool-general: 7684] Virtual IP is not following the Primary Postgres

Hi all,

we setup a 3 nodes cluster with PGPool-II version 4.2.3 like described here:


Tonight the primary node failed for network problems and failover occurred,
BUT we found that the Virtual IP was moved not on the new Primary Postsgres
but on the Standby one.

Since the Virtual IP is used for client connections to the Writable
Postgres, the clients were actually connecting to a Read-Only instance.

Shouldn't the Virutal IP get migrated ONLY on the node that has Primary

Thanks in advance.
