Does Meraki MX Supported LAN VRRP?

Hello everybody,

 

Does Meraki MX Supported LAN VRRP?
Will it be configured with Warm Spare and LAN VRRP if supported?
We want to build the following network configuration.
If you can, please let me know how to set it up.

yes. on the lan side with warm spare you can configure/use 1 IP only.

 

and do not connect both mx directly . let vrrp make use of your lan switches

Hi,

Certainly.

MX uses the VRRP, for sharing uplink health and connectivity status information between appliances.

VRRP heartbeats are sent across the LAN interfaces on each VLAN every second.

If no VRRP keepalives are heard by the secondary MX on any VLAN after three seconds, the dead timer will expire triggering a failover event.

 

The concept is explained neatly at the following Urls.

Thank you for reply.

 

So, do both MXs use only one IP for the VLAN Interface?
