Cluster Uplink question

    I have a 2 controller cluster each with a connection to the internet gateway and vrrp on the client vlan, all client traffic is sourced from whichever controller is the vrrp master regardless of which controller the client is connected to.

    I am curious if this is working as intended, I was expecting to see traffic sourced from both controllers (whichever one the client connects to)

    and if this is working as intended is there any way to utilize the currently unused internet link?

    Is the client VLAN natted out of each controller using "ip nat outside"?  What is the default gateway of that client subnet?  Is it the VRRP between controllers?

    Any opinions expressed here are solely my own and not necessarily that of Hewlett Packard Enterprise or Aruba Networks.

    I only have 'ip nat outside' on each controller's uplink port.

    The client subnet has vrrp between each controller.

    Yes I also have vrrp between each controller which APs are directed to for master/serverip/vendor specific dhcp option.
