Is someone able to confirm the behaviour I’m seeing is correct. I have a 2 switch VCS, with VRRP-E and short-path forwarding configured. Virtual fabric gateway is not configured.
If I ssh to the VRRP virtual IP address I can land on either box, does the short-path forwarding essentially mean the virtual IP exists on both switches simultaneously?
That is correct. Short-Path forwarding enables the VRRP backup to participate in forwarding the traffic to the destination instead of switching the traffic to the master.
