I've been experimenting with gateway selection in QuintanaLibre. I have a very bad gateway that I want to work as a last resort gateway when the other is down, so I tried changing to gw_mode client 1 and used some unreal values for the Up/Down speeds to "force" the selection.
Anyway, this is all well, the good gateway gets selected from almost all the mesh, but the problem is that when I updated the client routers configuration using uci to make it permanent, I stumbled with this strange result that you can see here:
there's no gateway being selected until I manually run: # batctl gw_mode client 1 (which was te current mode anyway) on each client.
In fact, connected computers are not being served DHCP offers because of this.
Is this some known behavior or just something I overlooked?
Thanks as ever for your help with batman-adv, which here at the far south we are loving every day more as little mesh clouds keep spawning around us :)
