Can one of you kindly answer my query regarding the MX250 HA setup in "routed-mode"?
We do have a dual hand-off model Internet link with /29 IP subnet for HSRP mode of fail-over from ISP.
We would want to use the WAN ports to participate VRRP heartbeat packets to define the failover since the WAN1 & WAN2 be part of same broadcast domain and moreover ISP routers and MX WAN connections are a local LAN within Data Center.
Is that something possible in MX? If yes, should we proceed to use a VIP in WAN or not?
As a note, we had single LAN connections in each MX LAN ports as a downlink and they are effectively being used for VRRP but when the downlink goes down we end up facing Active/Active role for both MX kits.
