Hi Dominique,

> 05[IKE] installing new virtual IP
> Why there is this previous message with the parameter : install_virtual_ip=no

This message doesn't mean the IP is actually installed on an interface.
 It's logged when the IP is assigned to the IKE_SA object.

If the setting above is enabled, and the IP is actually installed, the
kernel-netlink plugin would log this event with log level 2 in the KNL
subsystem (with a message like "[KNL] virtual IP ... installed on ...").
