Stopping Service After Marking Home_Server as Dead

Hi all,


I am using freeradius 3.0.4 version on CentOS 7. And whenever my proxy
servers mark as dead, radius service is stopped. 


At first I get "Proxy: Marking home server x.x.x.x port 1812 as dead." Log
and the service is stopped. I changed proxy.conf a bit and log has changed.
It says "Error: Failed adding event handler for socket!" and the service is
stopped. And I could not get any more logs. I found a mailing about the same
html) but there was no solution. 


My proxy server is also proxying requests to core radius servers for
eduroam. There is nothing I could do for proxy fails.


I have an average of 3000 concurrent users and this cause me a lot of
trouble. What should I do?


Proxy Configuration sample:


home_server External {

        type = auth

        ipaddr = x.x.x.x

        port = 1812

        secret = secret

        num_answers_to_alive = 10

        no_response_fail = no

        status_check = status-server

        check_interval = 10



Note that, I tried all variations of proxy.conf but I could not solve it. 


Thanks for your help.
