Unable to see virtual MAC address of HA device

Article ID: KB6561 KB Last Updated: 29 Jan 2009Version: 3.0
Summary:
Unable to see virtual MAC address of HA device
Symptoms:
VSI (Virtual Security Interface) NSRP V1 NSRP V2 Netscreen Redundancy Protocol - NSRP High Availability -HA

Unable to see Vitrual Mac address of HA (NSRP Cluster) device on connecting Router Only Physical Mac Address is shown on connecting router/switch NO VSI is defined
Solution:

If NO VSI (virtual security interface) is defined on HA/NSRP Pair, only the physical MAC address of NetScreen will show on the connecting router or switch.

Once the VSI IP is configured on the NetScreen, the virtual MAC address will be used.

By default, when using VSD Group 0, the VSI IP address will be automatically created.  If using the custom VSD Group number, VSI IP must be manually defined on each HA interface.

Here is the problem or goal:
