routing issue

Unanswered Question
Jan 7th, 2008

Hi all

We have an issue with a box trying to reach the subnet on my dmz which is, everything else inside can reach it fine except 2 servers, we have 2 routers using vrrp, 1 of them being active for routing to the dmz via a vlan. before I was here the other guy put a static route on the servers pointing to one of the routers instead of the alias, when I take the static route off the server and let it use the alias, it starts dropping packets, but just from these 2 servers and nothing else, what should I check on this ?

I have this problem too.

What kind of servers are they?

Some HP servers don't work correctly with VRRP for whatever reason, and some others don't as well.

The issue is with the fact that there are technically two mac addresses for the gateway possible when everything is in an operation state - the virtual, and the physical mac address of the device. Has a lot to do with the 2 address model.

For whatever reason, some devices have trouble with that.
