[lvs-users] keepalived vrrp v3 can not work

I configure keepalived using vrrp v2, it can work fine. But when I change to vrrp v3. VIP cannot be accessible from the other node.
The file /var/log/messages indicated that VIP is already added on the device:

And 'ip addr' likes as below:

'tcpdump -v host' outputs:

host-192-168-120-21.localdomain > vrrp host-192-168-120-21.localdomain > VRRPv3, Advertisement

But from the other node, ping VIP cannot work, ICMP echo-reply is not sent from the master node.

Can you help me to solve the above issue?
