Cause

Problem

When creating a VSX cluster, the application verifies that all modules have the same default gateway.
If the vap-group does not have a default gateway or default gateway is not identical on all members, the object creation fails.

Relevant versions:
  • R75.40VS  (VSX mode)
  • R76   (VSX mode)

Resolution

N/A

Workaround

As a workaround, configure a default gateway even if it is not needed from your network perspective.
Default gateway has to be configured the same for all cluster members.
