HSRP state Active Active


After confguring HSRP in my edge switches HSRP status is showing active in both switches as per my knowledge in HSRP one switch should be active state and other one shoud be in standby, Please let me know your thoughts on this and feel free to ask for more information.

Thank you in advance

HSRP state Active Active

Hi Siju,

This is generally because the two routers cannot reach each other through the interface in question. Most probably a L2 issue.

Hi,

Mr Harold is correct, this kind of issue happen when both the routers not communicating properly.

check the Ip connectivity as well as physical connection.

Thanks

Hi Harold and Shashi,

Thanks for your replay.Here both ip's are communicating eachother. I have generated new HSRP logs. PFB, HSRP logs and kindly suggest any other troubleshooting steps for resolving the issue.

Siju

You have not told us what platform this is configured on but it looks to be a layer 3 switch. And I note that the ports are configured as layer 3 routed ports and not as switch ports. So it makes it important to know what is physically connected on these switch ports. The output of show cdp neighbor would be very helpful in this.

For HSRP to work it must send a layer 2 multicast which must be received by the HSRP peer. Your output suggests that the multicast is not getting through. The fact that arp is not showing the neighbor also suggests that there is not layer 2 broadcast connectivity between these switch ports. So please inform us exactly of what is physically connected to each of these switch ports.

Hi Siju,

Have you checked if there are no flaps/errors that may casue the HSRP to break. In the mean time can you please share the output of the below commands.

I also see that the switch becase standby which means the HSRP worked and suddenly lost the active router , can you tell me how frequently does this flap occur.?

Do you have to shut/no shut one interface to reform the HSRP again ?

Run the extended pings when the HSRP on both routers are active, this will confirm if the multicast hello packets are being sent and are being replied to by the other switch.

Hi Siju,

can you ping 224.0.0.2 when the issue is happening to see if both the switches can respond back?

hi,

The logs shows that both the routers are not communicating to each other for hsrp as no hello packet are seen.

please send sh cdo neighbour so that we can get the information about the connectivity.

Thanks

Shashi
