Layer 2 to Layer 3 communication on same subnet

L1 Bithead

Has anyone successfully configured an HA pair with a layer 2 interface and layer 3 interface on the same subnet? 


Having issues with the communication between the devices on the layer 2 interface.  There is a vlan configured and has an IP, so can see devices within the mac table.  Support recommended the vlan have an ip, but this really makes things dicey as far as a default gateway and routing that traffic.


The layer 3 interface is the default gateway and all belong to same virtual router.
