I am facing a issue in using virtual connect (VC) with HSRP.
The setup is as below.
| (Link 1) | (Link2
VC1 ----------- VC2
| ----- Blade1 ------|
Router1 is running HSRP with Router2, Link1 is connected from Router1 to VC1 and Link2 is connected from Router2 to VC2. Both the VCs are in the same enclosure and are connected via a internal chasis backplane. Currently, the link on the VC1 is showing active and the link on VC2 is showing standby. This is causing a problem as Router2 is not able to receive hello packets from Router1 which results in the HSRP not working properly.
Does anyone have similar setup, and is there any workaround to let Link2 become active so that Router2 can receive the hello packet from Router1 which will allow the HSRP to work properly?
Happy New Year in advance!
