Note: PFSense / CARP + VMWare ESXI

Since CARP uses 'virtual' mac addresses it is important for it to function properly you ensure that promiscuous mode is enabled on the vSwitch if you are using ESXI.

As you may know promiscuous mode is disabled by default for security on new vSwitches - however I usually prefer to create a port group within the vSwitch - so I can ensure that only the relevant machines are targeted.
