Question not clear.  You can connect one port from each SZ-100 into two different switches,
and STP will block one path to each.  SZ-100 does not run VRRP.

Hello Rahimi,

Yes, both v/SZ and ZD can be setup to use as redundant controller, with SZ you have two option 1)Active-active or 2) Active-Standby (Geo-redundancy) whereas with ZD only Active/Standby is supported. Kindly let us if you need redundancy setup with ZD or v/SZ.

Best Regards
Vineet

Hello Rahimi,

The process is very simple, kindly download the "Getting Started Guide" through below link and search with " Configure the Cluster Settings". 
https://support.ruckuswireless.com/documents/2507-smartzone-5-1-ga-getting-started-guide-sz100

FYI a SmartZone (SZ) 100 unit can only form a cluster with other SmartZone 100 units of the same model. For example, a SZ104 cannot be clustered with a SZ124 unit. 

Feel free to reach me out for any further concern or query.

Best Regards
Vineet

Ethernet from SZ-100 to your switch, and you may have Ethernet or fiber between if you have multiple switches.

Imagine both your SZ-100s in the Figure 4 image in the Quick Setup Guide.  https://support.ruckuswireless.com/documents/2817-smartzone-100-quick-setup-guide

Thanks for reply, but in Figure 4 only shows one SZ to a switch, although if I have two SZ and connect them to switch so what's the configuration for two ports in switch and in SZ to be redundant?
