Do the timers (hello and hold) have to match between HSRP routers? I thought they had to, but when I tried it in lab, it didn't make any changes to the existing active and standby roles.
What's the best practice of numbering "standby group number"? If I have two vlans between two HSRP routers, I tried using just "standby 1" for both interface vlans, and also "standby 1" for one vlan and "standby 2" for the other, but I didn't see any changes as far as the standby group functions.
Thanks a lot
