Re: Standby config in 6509

Hello Irvine,

show standby refers to the HSRP protocol that provides a Virtual default gateway on a vlan.

Using HSRP makes sense if you have two devices routers or multilayer switches (even of different models) that can be the exit point for clients in a vlan

on a C6500 the standby configuration is performed on L3 SVI Vlans

interface vlan 50

ip address 10.10.50.3 255.255.255.0

standby 50 ip 10.10.50.1

standby 50 preempt

standby 50 priority 105

standby 50 track vlan 10

this an example, default priority is 100 the highest priority router becomes active.

the VIP address is an address in the same IP subnet of the vlan interface

HSRP emulates VIP 10.10.50.1 at both L3 and L2 using a well known mac address that in the righmost byte has 0x32 = 50

On a multilayer switch you can reuse the same group number (50 in the example) on different SVI VLans but VIP address has to be given accordingly to vlan subnet

And again this is useful if you have multiple L3 devices serving the same subnet otherwise you are just preparing to install a second router/multilayer switch

Hope to help
