    I'm looking for a tutorial or a guide on how set up VRRP with virtual appliances on VMware. Does something like this exist.

    Something like:

    1. Goal: We want to achieve a working VRRP setup
    2. Therefor we need a) b) c) d) x)
    3. For a) to work we implement c) first as it's needed for x) to work and then take the information from b) and put it into d)
    4. We can test wether everything is working correctly by doing this...

    Addendum: If you try to do this on VMware, you have to configure your VLAN like this...

    Personally I find the documentation for VRRP high availability severly lacking. Sure, there are bits and pieces but they do not offer any context and how they are put together to get a working result. Besides, even if someone manages (I didn't) to implement it by the documentation, he will fail if he wants to set up a virtual appliance, as work has to be done on the virtualization platform, which is not mentioned at all in the docs.

    So my question is, does something like a tutorial or guide exist.

    Hi Christoph,

    I believe you have already spoken to one of our team on this.

    I connected with our product manager on this and they will look at improving the documentation around this. For any configuration issues outside of this, our support team will be happy to help.

    I hope this helps.
