Which controller peer IP address do I use when configuring master-master redunda

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS 3.x and later.


Starting with ArubaOS 3.x, controllers use an IPsec secure channel to communicate with each others, whether it is a master-local communication or a master-master communication.


In the case of a master-master redundancy, there is currently no option to specify the source IP address of the IPsec tunnel. The controller uses its switch IP.


If no loopback IP is configured, the command 'show switches' displays the switchip used by the controller.


Therefore, Aruba recommends you use the peer master controller switch IP as the peer IP in the master-redundancy command.
