VRRP cluster members are in "Backup/Backup" state Technical Level
Symptoms
  • Output of Gaia Clish command "show vrrp" displays both VRRP cluster members in "Backup" state.

  • Traffic capture of VRRP traffic ("tcpdump proto 112") does not shows any VRRP packets on any of the configured VRRP interfaces.

Cause

Cluster membership is disabled on VRRP cluster members.

To confirm:

  1. Run the cpconfig command on each VRRP cluster member.

  2. If the option is displayed as "Enable cluster membership for this gateway", then this is indeed the root cause.

    Example output:

    [Expert@VRRP_1:0]# cpconfig
