This article aims to solve the problem when virtual IP addresses on both HUBs are the same. The VIP address shouldn't be active on both HUBs at the same time.
The failover control module on the HUB on standby monitors the active HUB’s heartbeat and claims the virtual IP address in case of heartbeat loss, notifying the other network nodes by sending out an ARP (a broadcast message that ties the IP address to the MAC address of its Ethernet interface).

2. Review the below settings:
