Restart VRRP on JUNOS to fix master/master issues
I spent about 30 min this evening chasing a non-existing VRRP issue between 2 JUNOS SRX devices after a hardware drop-in replacement. One was configured as master, one as backup. Both were in the master status (normally indicating a lack of L2 connectivity), but each could ping the other on their interface address. The solution, ultimately, was to run
restart vrrp gracefully on each router, which restored the expected master / backup behavior.
