L2 gre with source and destination vrrp + keepalive

tunnel.png 

Hi guys, sorry for the ugly diagram, just want to confirm if this config is a valid and supported config in aruba, L2 gre tunnels where the source and destination are vrrp addresses and also that they support keepalive....

I would recommend to use tunnel-group instead of VRRP. You can have two tunnels between the controllers and one will be active at a time.

first thanks for your fast answer, but what iam trying to accomplish is to have 2 controllers per data center and only if both controllers in 1 datacenter fail i will failover to the next datacenter with the tunnel group.

I have just verified in my lab setup with 4 controllers, yes it works. Numeric value in tunnel mode cant be 0 I guess, so I used 1 instead. Worked like a charm.

Looks like they have fixed things lately. I remember GRE over VIP was not working in 6.3 code.

I have tested it on 6.4.4.11 and works perfectly fine.
