Set up OSPF for static routing on two machines

I have two routers in a medium network with 200 hosts. VRRP is running on both routers. One of them is the master and the other the backup. How do I need to setup OSPF for both machines to have the same static routing tables on both machines?
Hi Harald,
You need to run OSPF on the subnet of which VIP is a part of, on both the routers. You will have similar routing table on both the routers. If you want to have similar static routes on both the routers than you need to configure those exclusively on both of them. Make sure that next hop is VIP not the actual IP addresses.
Hope this helps.
