HSRP with a single 3845

Answered Question

I have 2 4506's are Port Channeled. Today my 3845 is only connect to one of those. I'd like to use HSRP and connect the 3845 to both 4506's, that way my MPLS traffic won't have to traverse the first one to reach it's destination.

Is this possible? Can anyone point me to an article?

Thanks,

Gates

I have this problem too.

You can't do this because you can't have 2 ip addresses out of the same subnet on the same router.

Do this instead -

3845

int gi0/1 (connected to 4506_1)

ip address 192.168.5.1 255.255.255.252

int gi0/2 (connected to 4506_2)

ip address 192.168.5.5 255.255.255.252

4506_1

int gi0/1 (connected to 3825 gi0/1)

no switchport

ip address 192.168.5.2 255.255.255.252

4506_2

int gi0/1 (connected to 3825 gi0/2)

no switchport

ip address 192.168.5.6 255.255.255.252

then either

1) if you are running a dynamic routing protocol between the 3825 and the 4500s already the 3825 will see 2 equal cost paths to the 4500s and use them both

or

2) if you aren't running a dynamic routing protocol you can just use static routes.
