VRRP not working

Hi

I have tow 5406zl switches and try to configure vrrp.

Here the config
SW1:
ip routing
vlan 1
name "DEFAULT_VLAN"
untagged A1-A24,B13-B24,C3-C4,Trk10,Trk20-Trk25
ip address 10.46.10.30 255.255.0.0
exit

vlan 1
vrrp vrid 1
owner
virtual-ip-address 10.46.10.30 255.255.0.0
priority 255
enable
exit
exit


SW2:
vlan 1
name "DEFAULT_VLAN"
untagged A3-A24,B13-B24,C3-C4,D1-D24,E1-E24,F1-F24,Trk1,Trk10,Trk20-Trk25
ip address 10.46.10.31 255.255.0.0
exit

vlan 1
vrrp vrid 1
backup
virtual-ip-address 10.46.10.30 255.255.0.0
enable
exit
exit


When I restart the master (10.46.10.30) I'm not able to ping the IP 10.46.10.30.
But I can see, that the SW2 will become the vrrp master.

What could be the proble here.

Best regards,

Re: VRRP not working

Hello Nathy,

when a backup router is in MASTER state, the virtual IP address is not responding to ICMP. So it is a normal behaviour compliant with RFC.

If you want your backup router to respond to ICMP you have to use the "router vrrp virtual-ip-ping" command.

See for details:

This feature is available since K.14.47
