HSRP standby router

Hello,

If we have three routers in HSRP i.e. one is active, second is standby and third is listen.

If the standby router goes down with active being up and operational, will the third router become new standby?

Thanks

Re: HSRP standby router

Hi,

yes.

Have a look at the HSRP State Machine:

The condition that keeps the third router in the Listen state is 11-B:

- Receipt of a hello message of higher priority from the standby router (event)

- the Standby Timer is fired (action)

When no more Hellos with a higher priority are received from the standby router, the Standby Timer expires; it is then re-started (4-B) and the state changes to Speak and finally to Standby.
