SG 500X Switch VRRP Issue

HI all.

 

I have 2 SG500x's that i am trying to establish VRRP over.

When i kill the master switch, the backup seems to take over but the Ip address of the Virtual router cant be accessed. 

 

Could anybody point me in the right direction?

Switch 1:

interface vlan 1
 ip address 192.168.84.1 255.255.255.0
 no ip address dhcp
 vrrp 2 ip 192.168.84.1
 vrrp 2 source-ip 0.0.0.0
 no vrrp 2 shutdown
 vrrp 2 description 2

Switch2: 

interface vlan 1
 ip address 192.168.84.2 255.255.255.0
 no ip address dhcp
 vrrp 2 ip 192.168.84.1
 vrrp 2 source-ip 0.0.0.0
 no vrrp 2 shutdown
 vrrp 2 description 2

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hello Brett, When you say the

Hello Brett,

 

When you say the IP cannot be accessed what do you mean?  

Does traffic still flow properly, or does something go wrong?

I don't think you'll be able to access the switch at the virtual IP, since when the backup is acting as the forwarder it is just using that IP to respond to default gateway requests.

What happens if you kill switch 2?  Can you still access the virtual IP address then?
