Does this make sense?

I dont get this config.

The ip address of the interface is a /30, since its a point o point.

But then the vrrp group is configured with a /24

They're also both on different subnets....???? Huh?

I dont get it. Im not sure what the other vrrp group is for either. Load sharing???

interface TenGigabitEthernet9/2

description To7609-2

ip address

vrrp 1 ip

vrrp 1 priority 120

vrrp 2 ip

vrrp 2 priority 120

Im used to seeing something like this:

int ge 1/0

ip address

vrrp 1 ip (OR standby 1 or GLBP 1)

and on the other router:

int gi1/0

ip address

vrrp 1 ip

I have this problem too.

Hi, Giuseppe:

Im sorry, but Im conused with your answer. What are you saying?

You agree with my concern/statement, or you agree with the configuation and think its correct.

What context?

Sorry :-(

Hello Joe,

I agree with your concern.

If we put a vrrp group it needs to use an ip address that belongs to an ip subnet that is advertised in some way primary or secondary ip address of the lan interface(s).

context = routing context

Sorry if I've confused you

Hope to help

Ok, thats what I thought. Maybe its just a typo. Or maybe the guy is on crack. :-)
