We have 2 CORE Switches Connected each other.
HSRP is enabled on it.
3 Vlans ( 1,3,5 ) are active from core - 1 and other 3 vlans ( 2,4,6 ) are active from Core - 2.
Prob. 1 : Now for testing purpose when I shutdown vlan 3 from the Core 1 than in sh standby vlan brief cmd output I see vlan 3 in init mode . Is it ok or it should be standby in standby mode ?
Prob 2 : I have conected my laptop on gigabit eth of CORE 1 i.e gi2/1 in vlan 2 which is active from CORE 2.now when I shut vlan 2 from CORE 2 than I can not ping CORE 2 from here. I can ping CORE 1.
than what is the cause behind this pls tell me ...I m condufed in this.
Pls reply soon
The HSRP state will be in init mode when you shutdown the interface SVI
When you shut down the SVI, you cannot reach that SVI address and hence ping to core 2 fails. you can however still access the HSRP ip address
