HSRP Virtual IP not reachable at times

Hi Team,

Good day.

We are having issues with 2 of nexus with one of its Vlan. The Vlan is running HSRP and please take note that it does not failover to the standby switch.

However the problem here is that the Virtual IP is not reachable at times and that causes the VM ware to go into isolation mode.

However after about 25 minutes (arp table cleared) the virtual ip is reachable and we are able to ping it.

Hence as a workaround we have already set static arp entry on the nexus and  now there is still outages but it last less then 20 seconds.

Has anyone encountered similar issues.

Below is the vlan configs:

interface Vlan120

  no shutdown

  description # Management Interface #

  no ip redirects

  ip address 172.16.1.X

  ip router eigrp XXX

  hsrp version 2

  hsrp 120


    priority 150

    ip 172.16.1.X

Configuration is the exact same on the other switch and the UCS chassis is directly connected to the nexus 5k.

Please assist.

Thanks and Regards,
