VRRP giving out MAC of physical interface instead of virtual

Mon Jan 20, 2014 10:06 am

I have VRRP setup.

Some of the windows clients are showing in their ARP entries, for the VRRP IP, a physical MAC instead of a virtual MAC.


Surely this is incorrect?

A bad one looks like:
Interface: 192.168.185.187 --- 0xc
Internet Address Physical Address Type
192.168.185.1 d4-ca-6d-43-dd-98 dynamic
192.168.185.2 d4-ca-6d-43-dd-98 dynamic
192.168.185.3 d4-ca-6d-43-dd-b2 dynamic

a good one looks like:
Interface: 192.168.185.188 --- 0xc
Internet Address Physical Address Type
192.168.185.1 00-00-5e-00-01-02 dynamic
192.168.185.2 d4-ca-6d-43-dd-98 dynamic
192.168.185.3 d4-ca-6d-43-dd-b2 dynamic

Even if I delete the entry from the bad host, it comes back with a physical MAC again.

Any ideas?

It seems, if I have it the right way around, the hosts that physically flow through the Layer2 of MT1 first, show the physical MAC, where as those hosts that flow through the backup MT show the virtual MAC.
