HSRP tracking via IP

Unanswered Question
Nov 21st, 2007

Is there a way to track an IP instead of an interface when using HSRP Tracking?

I have this problem too.

This command is a config mode command. Configure this command as below,

"track 1 ip route < ip addr/n> reachability"

and apply the same under interface using

int g0/0

standby 1 track 1

This will track the ip route and if the ip addr is not in routing table, the object will be down.

Hope this helps.
