3dr IP Adress for VRRP - Is it possible?


Hi,
I've got a question here concerning Extreme switches (48si,X450, X480, it really does not matter). Is it possible to configure VRRP with a 3rd IP Adress as VIP? Just like "the other company's switches" do? The ones that I've tried to configure this way have Layer3 licenses and all
Example:
SwA - 10.1.1.1
SwB - 10.1.1.2
VIP - 10.1.1.3
Thanks in advance for your help!
