Need 2 subinterface to use the same ip address (failover setup from connected devices)

L0 Member

We have two 5250s setup active/passive. we have two vmware VeloCloud devices connected that have similar active/passive failover. VeloCloud 1 has interfaces mirrored by VeloCloud2...including the interface ip addressing. Palo does not like two interfaces with the same ip address. What can y'all recommend for us to have the same ip address on two difference interfaces on the 5250 to support the VeloCloud failover setup?


VeloCloud1 ip x.x.234.1port3 active ==> switch1 vlan 505 ==> 5250 subinterface 13.505 ip needs to be x.x.234.2

VeloCloud2 ip x.x.234.1port3 passive ==> switch2 vlan 505 ==> 5250 subinterface 15.505 ip needs to be x.x.234.2


What can we do at the 5250 so 13.505 and 15.505 can be configured with ip x.x.234.2?
