Hi Zanub,

hi ankur,

below the config of vlan..both switch has similar config..

interface Vlan70

ip address

standby timers 1 3

standby 70 ip

standby 70 priority 110

standby 70 preempt

they are not connected to each other as of now..

briefly someone mistakenly connected these 2 switches with ports that are in trunk mode with below config..

interface FastEthernet0/47

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport trunk native vlan 80

switchport trunk allowed vlan 80,90

switchport mode trunk

channel-group 1 mode on

these 2 switches goes to 2 different routers with 2 different wan connection, these 2 routers are connected to each other..
