DHCP on management VLAN

In the documentation for the 2900XL switch, in the section about the management VLAN, it says:

"Before changing the management VLAN on your switch network [ ... ] the new management VLAN should not have an Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) standby group configured on it."

Can anyone explain why there is this restriction? I can see certain advantages in running HSRP on the management VLAN.

Anyone?

Hi Kevin,

AFAIK HSRP does not work on 2900XL/3500XL switch.

Re: DHCP on management VLAN

Ankur,

I am not really trying to use HSRP on the 2900XL switch itself. I am just trying to move the management to a VLAN that happens to be served by a pair of routers (well, actually 4500 switches) that are doing HSRP between themselves. The management interface of the 2900XL is just another host on the management VLAN. But the documentation seems to imply that I shouldn't be doing that, and I was curious to know why not.
