I have 2 X 6513's HSRP'ed as my core switches and have about 50 VLANS. I have the vlan interfaces configured with standby priorities set trying to alternate the HSRP "active" interface in an attempt to load balance between the two switches. I then configured "spanning tree vlan ## root and secondary" on each core without taking into consideration which one was "active" in HSRP. Although I've seen no impact, does this matter? Does one protocol override the the other?
After discovering my error, I planned to mirror the two (active and root). Keeping in mind I'm looking to try and load balance between my two core switches, any suggestions on which protocol to change?
I figured the Port Channel between the two was being impacted. Unfortunately the guy before me was kind of odd and numbered all the vlans with odd numbers. After viewing "show standby brief" it looks like it will be easier to just change my spanning-tree vlan statements.
