[ClusterLabs] FW: ocf_heartbeat_IPaddr2 - Real MAC of interface is revealed

Dear folks,

We are currently trying to set up a multimaster cluster and use a cloned ocf_heartbeat_IPaddr2 resource to share the IP address.

We have, however, run into a problem that, when a cluster member is taken offline, the MAC for the IP address changes from the multicast-MAC to the interface mac of the remaining host.
When the other host is put pack online, pings to the cluster IP time out when it changes back to multicast (until the ARP cache on the router expires).

Is there any way to prevent network devices from learning the interface MACs? I.e. even if one host is servicing both resources, use the multicast MAC?
Any help would be appreciated!

Here is the pcs status:
