One of my interfaces is showing this:

#sh standby

GigabitEthernet0/1 - Group 20

State is Init (interface down)

Virtual IP address is

This system RouterA) is IP's with .2 as its IP and .1 as the standby.

It partner - ROuterB is .3 with .1 as standby

Router A can ping .1,.2,.3 - Router B acan ping .1,.2, and .3

A show interface on routerA shows it as up/up

From the next device (.4) I can ping .1, .2, and .3

From a network POV it seems to be working just fine.

both sides have Preemption enabled

any ideas why this "State is Init (interface down)" issue is happening?

This is in a sh standby as well:

RouterA: Priority 200 (configured 200)

RouterB: Priority 195 (configured 195)
