Why would a client be using the vrrp address as a gateway in a L2 setup?

I would expect that any wlan clients should be using the hsrp address on the cores, rather than the vrrp address on the controllers... so cant really figure out why you would want this scenario. This is some legacy config on some old controllers which we are migrating from, and one of the 6 wlan /24 networks leas pools was configured to provide the vrrp address as the gateway. Anyone shed any light on why you may want this config? Cheers

Typical deployments use your core network for routing.  The exception to this is sometimes guest VLANs that are not routable and live only on the controller and are NAT'd out.    There are also some use cases for the controller acting as the gateway in some remote networking deployments.  In your case, there is not an obvious explanation for this.

 

For other thoughts, review the Default Gateways and Routes section of the Aruba Mobility Controllers VRD.
