When the Stateful High Availability Upgrade is licensed, Virtual MAC capability is also licensed. Virtual MAC allows the backup unit in an HA pair to use the MAC address of the primary unit when a failover occurs. Alternatively, you can manually set a virtual MAC address for both units to use. Virtual MAC addressing contributes to network continuity and efficiency during a failover in the same way as the use of virtual IP addresses. During a failover, the backup unit uses the same virtual IP address that was used by the primary unit. The Virtual MAC feature avoids the need to update the whole network to associate the virtual IP address with the actual physical MAC address of the backup unit.
