Im currently working on migrating a customer from a standalone unit to a redundant pair using Trinzic 1410 devices.
Prior to moving them over i created a testbed using vnios on vmware.
The customer is using LAN1 to provide some services but it is also using LAN2 to provide other services.
I have created the configuration for the HA pair but do not see any documentation that talks about how to provide HA to the LAN2 interface.
Once i configured the HA pair on the vms i receive the following error.
*****ERROR: Duplicate IP address: 192.168.40.4! Check lan2 interface!****
As per experience with other network devices i assume we must create a VIP for LAN2 but cant find where on the device to do it , i have checked the admin manual and the cli manual but cant seem to find info.
Would appreciate it if someone can guide me in the right direction.

If you configure the LAN2 interface, you can set it's IP address. If configured for HA, this IP 'floats' between both LAN2 inrerfaces depending on which unit is active. If you set if for HA, it creates a virtual MAC address for this VIP (LAN2) interface

Ok so if i understand correctly the LAN2 interface will float automatically to and from when it failsover correct ?
When you mention setting it for HA is it a checkbox? or where do you set it ?
