VRRP Solved

September 1st, 2008

Problem solved.

Draytek seem to have somehow embedded the MAC address of the routers interfaces in to the config file – although they deny this.

Factory resetting the second router and configuring it by hand to match the first seems to have solved it for now.

At the same time, I discovered that the latest firmware disables all user-defined static routes until it moves in to the master role. This is a total pain because it means I can’t admin the second slave router unless the machine I’m using is in the switch management VLAN – and guess how many machines are!!
