Which version of CTDB are you running?  The per-ip-routing support has
been substantially rewritten in the 2.x series.  However, it won't
directly change the answer since the behaviour hasn't changed much.

I don't think you need to do that...

Your LOW and HIGH setting are nice and conservative, so you're unlikely
to accidentally stomp on any other tables by accident.  However, if you
add IP addresses in the future and forget to expand that range then you
might see weird failures.  I'd suggest a wider range somewhere
between 1000 and 9000...

Instead of modifying 13.per_ip_routing, does adding the follow to
per_ip_routing.conf give you what you want?

peace & happiness,
