I am rather new to Aruba WIFI, but have an issue with a VRRP setup.
We have 2 controllers (7205). We use a separate VLAN for management and for one the AP's.
I created 2 VRRP's, one for the management of the controller and one for the controller IP address used by the AP's.
Master/backup setup is fine, and everything seems to be working fine, but when i open a ping -t to the vrrp managment ip address, i get timeouts pinging to this interface, and i have no idea where to look.
When i ping to the 2 individual management ip addresses, i have no timeouts.
Pinging to the controller's VRRP master address (for the ap's) has no timeouts.
Any idea what is the cause of this strange behaviour ?
Thanks in advance

Timeouts as in packet loss or as in it never responds?
Issue "show vrrp" in the CLI on the primary master, does it say "Admin State UP, VR State MASTER" on your VRRPs?
If so, can the primary master ping this VRRP address(itself)?

The vrrp admin state is UP, VR state is master, there are no error messages.
The master can ping its vrrp address, no timeouts or drops.
As far as I know, there are no other devices with the same IP address.
The preemption delay is 10, i suppose this cannot be the problem.

When connecting (ping) to the vrrp mgmt address there is packet loss, but most of the time there is a kind of "pattern" in it.
"reply, loss, reply, loss,..."
I already checked my LACP settings, but the issue also happens when only 1 interface is active.
Ping directly to the master mgmt address (not the vrrp), gives no packet loss, both are on same subnet, so routing should not be an issue...
