Hi;

 

My understainding that for a HA member, VRRP heart beat flows from the HA interface of the active node to the LAN1 and HA interfaces of the passive node. My question is: If you have the Mgt port enabled on the active and passive nodes, does VRRP flow from the HA interface of the active node to the LAN1, HA and Mgt interface of the passive node?

Hi Wasfi,

 

VRRP packets in an HA pair is not directed to the interfaces of the passive node. VRRP advertisements are multicast packets. The passive nodes listens for these packets on its HA interface and the active node listens for these on its LAN1 or LAN1(VLAN) ports.

 

More details on this are explained in the section"VRRP Advertisements" in the NIOS Administrator Guide.
