I have two 4506 switches running HSRP for a server vlan. On the server vlan my server guy has deployed two servers running microsoft NLB in vmware. I had to put a static arp entry in my 2 cores but HSRP doesn't seem to be acting rght. After the static arp entry we were able to ping the microsoft NLB'd virtual server. We simulated a failure on the server vlan and the secondary HSRP 4506 didn't take over as the active gateway. Any ideas?
How is the server hooked into this setup ? Is there a switch below these 4500"s ? Is the hsrp in the correct state with a active side and a standby side ? We need a little more info on how the server is hooked in . Here is a page that might help.
this issue has been resolved. i created a test server SVI w/HSRP and trunked it to the bladecenter. Server guy created a test MS NLB cluster and i shut down the active SVI and the other SVI on the 4500 took over. i didn't have a solid way of testing without affecting production traffic. the static arp entries were the key to making this work.
