Upstream VRRP / HSRP routers and Aruba/HP 2530-24G Switch (J9776A) switch


We have an uplink provider which comes to us with two routers using VRRP or HSPR.

I connect both of them into Aruba switch and provider technician told, that they cannot communicate with each other. We test both - HSRP and VRRP.

Both ports are untagged with the same VLAN. 


For the test, also I used dumb $5 switch and, in this case, everything works perfectly.


My thoughts were - VRRP and HSRP both using multicast and our switch blocks multicast.


Can somebody check our configuration and check, where I got wrong? 

I quite new to HPE/Aruba, before I working mainly with Cisco.  


The switch is HP 2530-24G Switch (J9776A),
