We are attempting to setup an active/active for two Watchguard firewall appliances on a network that has a Nexus 5010 and a Nexus 5020 switches, WAN is via MPLS environment. Since the Nexus 5000 switches don't support adding static ARP entries for a unicast IP to its multicast MAC address, we are stuck. Unless there is a work-around.
Has anyone implemented a Watchguard cluster with the Nexus hardware?
We have found this workaround on a bug report, has anyone tried it with success?
