We have an OSPF network with four 6500 Distribution Switches. They are fully meshed and see each other as peers and are sharing routes.
Off of one pair (Border) there is a setup of 3750G siwtches that go off to another network and they do not run OSPF.
Between the Border Dist and the 3750G Switches we run HSRP. The 3750G side uses HSRP GP 192 and the Dist Side uses HSRP 192.
There are static routes on the 3750G pointing to the Dist HSRP address to get back to network.
Pings fail from the OSPF side to the HSRP address on the 3750G side.
If I do a trace from the OSPF side to the HSRP address it hits one border dist switch then the other and fails.
If I have static routes on both border dist switches pointing to the HSRP on the 3750side, do we need to change the metric on one dist so that it is preferred over the other or should the router Id take care of that?
However, you should use two different HSRP groups one on the C3750G pair for example GROUP 192 and the other one on the Distribution pair that is part of the OSPF domain (example group 193)
Static routes on the C3750G should use as IP next-hop the VIP of Dist HSRP group and the static routes on the Distribution pair should use as IP next-hop the VIP of the HSRP group running on the C3750G and should be redistributed into OSPF domain.
All the VIPs addresses, the C3750G SVIs, the Distr SVIs have to be in a common IP subnet that should be advertised in OSPF using area command + passive interface on both Distribution devices.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
[toc:faq]Introduction:Netdr is a tool available on a RSP720, Sup720 or
Sup32 that allows one to capture packets on the RP or SP inband. The
netdr command can be used to capture both Tx and Rx packets in the

IntroductionOSPF, being a link-state protocol, allows for every router
in the network to know of every link and OSPF speaker in the entire
network. From this picture each router independently runs the Shortest
