Conntrack-sync error - error adding listen-address command
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


On VyOS 1.3.0, command set service conntrack-sync listen-address X.X.X.X is not working.

Steps to reproduce error:

# Create IP address
set interfaces ethernet eth0 address '

## VRRP config:
set high-availability vrrp group FOO interface 'eth0'
set high-availability vrrp group FOO virtual-address ''
set high-availability vrrp group FOO vrid '10'
set high-availability vrrp sync-group SG member 'FOO'

# conntrack-sync config:
set service conntrack-sync failover-mechanism vrrp sync-group 'SG'
set service conntrack-sync interface eth0

Commit at that points works well. Adding next commands introduces the error:

vyos@vyos# set service conntrack-sync listen-address
vyos@vyos# commit
[ service conntrack-sync ]
VyOS had an issue completing a command.
