I have centos 6 installed with ipvsadm for load balancing service on my VMware, but when I type following commands I got several errors.
- # ipvsadm
error => error inserting ip_vs (/lib/modules/2.6.32-71.29.1.el6.x86_64/kernel/net/netfilter/ipvs/ip_vs.ko): unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter.
- # modprobe ip_vs
error=> same as above
- # cat /proc/net/ip-vs
error: directory of files not found
Kernel version: 2.6.32-71
ipvsadm version: 1.25
I read that ipvsadm must be compiled in the kernel, but how? Do I have to upgrade to a newer kernel, v3.1.4 maybe? Does this 3.1.4 kernel has ipvsadm built/compiled in?
Is there any danger for centos 6 if we upgrade to 3.1.4(this version is not listed on centos site) or older version?
Thanks in advance,
