keepalived shutdown - does not run "notify" hook on daemon shutdown

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I'm running keepalived under Debian (Lenny, Squeeze) in a fairly simple setup, I'm just (ab)using it as a VRRP daemon to decide the mastership between two equal machines for some virtual IPs. All the magic happens in the notify-script. When I completely stop the daemon (using debian's init-script) keepalived does not run the notify-script for backup or at least fault mode, which is what I would suspect and need. I could "fix" the rc-script with some unwanted effects - the notify-script would be hard-coded into the rc-script introducing an unwanted coupling of these two and the mess of portin (HowTos)
