HSRP (Cisco 7204 VXR) and Enterasys (SecureStack B3)
Hi To All:
I have a HSRP configuration on 2-7204VXR Routers, which was working properly using Catalyst 2900 XL Series switches.
I exchange the Cisco Switches for Enterasys SecureStack B3.
interface Ethernet1/2 ip address 10.15.7.4 255.255.255.0 no ip redirects ip nat inside no ip mroute-cache no logging event link-status duplex half no snmp trap link-status no mop enabled standby 14 ip 10.15.7.1 standby 14 priority 110 standby 14 preempt standby 14 track Serial2/0:2 20 end
interface Ethernet1/2 ip address 10.15.7.2 255.255.255.0 no ip redirects ip nat inside no ip mroute-cache no logging event link-status duplex half no snmp trap link-status no mop enabled standby 14 ip 10.15.7.1 standby 14 preempt standby 14 track Serial2/2:2 end
The RTR1 is the Primary, tracking the Serial Port. If the Serial fails, it switch to RTR2.
The problem is that when the Serial on RTR1 fails, the HSRP stop working properly. The virtual IP is not accesible continuously.Is like the HSRP is switching between routers back and forth.
In a test I did, on the Enterasys the switch detects the port of the router who owns the Virtual-IP, the Master Router.
I contacted Enterasys and they couldn't help because the HSRP protocol runs on L2, in other words, should work.

- Yes from each router they are able to see each oter with the "sho standby "
#sho standby eth1/2
Ethernet1/2 - Group 14 State is Active 171 state changes, last state change 00:46:26 Virtual IP address is 10.15.7.1 Active virtual MAC address is 0000.0c07.ac0e Local virtual MAC address is 0000.0c07.ac0e (default) Hello time 3 sec, hold time 10 sec Next hello sent in 0.164 secs Preemption enabled Active router is local Standby router is 10.15.7.2, priority 100 (expires in 8.192 sec) Priority 110 (configured 110) Track interface Serial2/0:2 state Up decrement 20 IP redundancy name is "hsrp-Et1/2-14" (default)
- The RTR2 is the Backup, maybe I don't need to track the Serial on it.
Also at the Switch, when I do the test, I verify the Mac addresses and the switch is able to identify the port of the Active Router.
Today I did another test.
On RTR1 I shutted down the Serial, so my remote site switch to te backup. Also I disconnected physically the Eth Port from the Switch.
The first test, I loose ping to the Virtual IP, completly. On the second try, the ping to the virtual IP was intermittent.
There most be something with the Switch and the Code version int it, which is 01.02.04.005.
I guess I have to try with Enterasys Support again.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
