When going through the setup dialog on a 7240, which mac-address do we enter when asked to "Enter Master switch MAC address"? Interface? System HW? VRRP mac?
We have a master and a backup master so I was curious as to how hard coding the master's mac-address would work. I am currently pointing all locals to the VRRP address.
Thanks in advance for your help.

In a Master-Local and/or Master-Redundant-Master setup the controller will communicate which eachother using IPSec tunnels. These IPSec tunnels can be established either through PSK's or factory certificates; these certs are issued based on the MAC address of the controller.
In most cases I will use strong PSK's, but you can go either way...
I have never used the setup dialog to setup clustering, I ussually bring up each controller as a master and take it from there. The setup dialog will not account for things like LACP for example.
