VSX Protocol configuration on HP Aruba 8360

    Hi there

    I have two HP Aruba-8360 and I configured VSX on both. As you can see in the topology diagram one is primary and other one is secondary. 

    On Primary I have Multiple VLANs, Interface vlans and DHCP Pool for corresponding vlans. And on secondary using " VSX-SYNC '' I got vlans on my secondary switch but was unable to get SVI for corresponding vlans. 
    My question is :
    Is it essential that we have different ip addresses in SVI on both primary and secondary?. Like for example I have 

    On Primary HP Aruba-8360

    interface vlan 5
        vsx-sync active-gateways
        description BMS
        ip address 172.22.x.x/24
        active-gateway ip mac 00:00:00:00:00:05
        active-gateway ip 172.22.x.x
    interface vlan 6
        vsx-sync active-gateways
        description Metering
        ip address 172.22.x.x/24
        active-gateway ip mac 00:00:00:00:00:06
        active-gateway ip 172.22.x.x

    So On Secondary HP Aruba-8360

    Should I have different ip address for interface vlan 5 and 6. I know we can keep the active-gateway the same on both switches but I'm not sure about IP Address for SVI. 

    And how I can sync primary interface vlan 5 and 6 on secondary switch using VSX Protocol in HP-Aruba 8360.

    the interface vlan IP addresses will be unique to each VSX switch with a common Active gateway IP/mac  addr
