SG500x VRRP Problem

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

Brett

Hi Brent,After looking at

Hi Brent,

After looking at your question, it looks like you're using your VRRP address on VLAN1 on switch 1. My understanding of VRRP is this would be a virtual address which would float between switches in case of a failure. My recommendation for IP addressing of VLAN 1 across switches is to use .1 as the VRRP address and .2 & .3 for each of the switches, as this will give you some room to expand in case you add another switch in the future. See my changes below:

Switch 1:

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

Switch2: 

interface vlan 1
 ip address 192.168.84.3 255.255.255.0
 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

 

Let me know if this works out for you,

Dan
