I have a problem. I installed 2 ace appliances (with redundant ace for each) on different segments in the network for load-balancing purposes.
I connected a physical interface from each ace , tottal of 4 ace appliances , to a management network in order to manage them all from the same place.
I use an alias ip on the interface vlan to always manage the active ace , I also configured a different "shared-vlan-hostid" per appliance as recommended.
My problam begins when I try to manage the two active ace appliances by accessing their alias IP addresses since they have the same mac-address in the arp table , I can only manage one of them , the one that the switch learned first. In the meantime I use the actual IP instesd of the alias.
I am pretty sure this behavior is not normal since each ace (including the peers) has a different vlan-hostid configured.
I would appriciate your help very much. thanks
