Who can explain HSRP and OSPF on this topology.

Hello everybody!

I have a topology like in image. 


and I have a few question fore.

What I have:

1. Core and distribution switcher - 6509-E with SUP720

2. Acces layer switches is Cat 3560

3. WiFi - 2 WISM and two types of AP - 1020 and 1240AG

Can somebody explain for me what  ip subnets  should be beetween core-distribution-server farm to run HSRP protocol. Should I create STANDBY for each SVI interface? How can I create STANDBY on routed physical interfaces? How many STANDBY addresses should I have? What features of OSPF should I use to run it properly?

Why do you need HSRP if you are running L3 links between each zone? HSRP is needed for redundancy, which is handled by the routing protocol in your diagram. You can set up small subnets for the L3 links between each zone, /30 should be fine.

HSRP will be needed on the distro, access and server farm zone switches but not between the zones.
