Weird. We just got a Brocade ADX 1000 for server load balancing. Config is setup to emulate the basic load balancer configuration in their guide (real servers, VIP and management IP are all members of the same subnet). Yet we can't ping or reach the VIP at all, with Layer 3. We can arping it to know that it's there.

Is this restricted by licensing (just found out the licenses are circa 2013 and 2014) or is there something wrong with our configuration? I would be grateful for any pointers.

Our basic configuration:

Fixed. Apparently I am not supposed to add the VIP to the network the mgmt1 interface is on.

Had to use the dsr method in order to get the load balancing to function. Can't complain but I would have like to do it without dsr (having to create loopback interfaces on the real servers, with the VIP's address).
