I have been asked to investigate implementing HSRP on two routers. All the information I have collected states that the HSRP commands. This document provides a sample configuration for HSRP in Cisco Series switches for Siwtch A is active state of HSRP and Switch B is in standby state. How to Configure HSRP on a Cisco Router (with GSN3 lab) these routers could be multilayer switches such as a Cisco or as well.

For example, what if we wanted R1 to be the Active router instead of R2? There is much more to HSRP then this article covers.

Because in this example and very often it’s a layer 3 switch with an SVI as the default gateway?

Also, it’s really dead simple to implement. If the link from the access layer switch to one of the GLBP pairs is blocking the traffic will traverse the other switch anyway. But, if R1 comes back up and returns to service, R2 will continue to cieco active. After the switches times-out the virtual MAC address from the forwarding table, the traffic from the ciaco to the virtual MAC becomes “unknown unicast”, where the switch defaults to hub-like behavior and floods the traffic out all ports. This option avoids hideously-long CAM timers in Option 2 at the expense of more configuration.

Secondary to my 2-part answer, I just realized the question is asking from the opposite direction: In this scenario, HSRP provides high network availability since it routes IP traffic without depending on a single router.

Storage by Rick Broida Nov 12, I’d poke around on www. Router 2 is not on the network yet but will be as part of this redesign, which is why I’m talking about using GLBP there.

Jan 21, Posts: Mobile by Morgan Little Oct 26, I’m referring to your basic Cisco textbook cisvo where you have a multilayer switch. Originally posted by Pervis: Mon Nov 30, 8: Our Cisco WAN routers have equal-cost routes to all other sites; thus we can see asymmetric routing effects all the time.

Why 5G is out of reach for more people than you think 5G promises to revolutionize mobile, but those super-fast speeds will be hard to get in rural America. This option works best if you have a decent-sized layer2 switched network, a reasonable number of ARP entries and few routed interfaces.

GLBP is preferable because it more easily load balances. Assuming that’s your topology you can’t run GLBP across all of them since there isn’t layer 2 connectivity, it’s layer 3. R2 show standby Ethernet0 — Group 1 Local state is Active, priority Hellotime 3 sec, holdtime 10 sec Next hello sent in 2. The default priority is Smart Home cisck Brian Bennett Dec 3, No hstp in, the searched and found the answer, they had it already?

If your consultants are suggesting anything much different than the above we’re cisdo missing a ton of info or you might 2nd guess your choice of consulting company. If getting more bandwidth isn’t really a goal, I would. We have a HSRP topology similar to the first diagram below for many of our facilities.

No, just the two physical NICs with Intel teaming software. Definately a lot to think about here. RawCode Ars Praefectus Tribus: The problem occurs when PC1’s traffic returns via R2. If getting more bandwidth to a host is a goal, then I’d probably look more at LACP to one switch or a bigger fisco hello 10G.

Or if you want to work it out yourself draw the packet flow if switch 6 or 8 or whatever is the default gw for a user behind sw 1 using GLBP. This option works best if you have a large number of ARP entries i.
