Re: MHSRP

If u wanted to configure HSRP u need to have an MSFC card(layer 3) then only it is possible to configure HSRP on your 6509 switches.

once the MSFC card is inserted.

issue the command as....

6509>session 15

which will take you the layer 3 card.

which

configuration looks like below....

switch-A

interface vlan 2

ip address 10.1.1.2 255.255.255.0

standby 1 ip 10.1.1.1

standby 1 timers 5 15

standby 1 priority 101

standby 1 preempt

switch-B

interface vlan 2

ip address 10.1.1.3 255.255.255.0

standby 1 ip 10.1.1.1

standby 1 timers 5 15

standby 1 priority 100

standby 1 preempt

on the pc side you need to give the gateway ip address as 10.1.1.1 which is a virtual IP address, which means even if switch-A fails automatically switch-B takes the load.

eg. normal scenario 10.1.1.1 will act as 10.1.1.2,if 10.1.1.2 fails 10.1.1.1 will act as 10.1.1.3.

Note: on both the switches you need to have layer 3 cards installed.

hope this helps.

Re: MHSRP

as posted earlier, you can configure HSRP if you have MSFC on it.

this URL will help you to get overview and configuration of HSRP.
