OSPF with HA HA virtual ip



So I have an interesting situation


active active setup loopback.2 setup with a failover ip.


How do I add the ip to OSPF, because 1 interface will not have a IP address, so comitting it complains

We did this with a Redistribution Profile that was set to static, priority 10, with all of our floating IP addresses to advertise and made sure it was set to Redist.  After that, we went to the OSPF->Export Rules tab and added a new Export Rule using that Redistribution Profile as Ext 2.


This seemed to do the trick as our A/A firewalls are both advertising out routes but only the primary active, which is the master for the failover addresses with how we have it configured, is advertising routes for those floating IPs.
