I was checking freevrrpd on vlan(4) with almost identical setup and it
worked (4.7 with modified vlan.ko and 4.9). However, ospfd caused problems
and it was necessery to turn it out. ;)
When moving IP address from R1 to R2, R2 is not able to bring this IP
up cause it already has route to that network in routing table. Is it
possible You have similar problem here?
