Dual 7206's using HSRP

I want to setup a second 7206, configured exactly the same as my current. Right now, I have a dual - ds3 card with two providers coming in. If I was to setup the second 7206 and I want to use do I go about making both DS3's span to both routers? Anyone have any similar setups?

Re: Dual 7206's using HSRP


you can create two HSRP groups on the routers and both of the two routers

will be the active one for the two networks you must create. Then you can

simply put one half of the hosts in one network and the other host in the

second network or you will use a third router as a default gateway and that

router does the load-balancing between the two Cisco 7206s.

An other solution is to simply enable a routing protocol between the two

routers enable HSRP between both and adjust the routing on the active one

to load-balance between himself and the backup-router. This will work

quite fine. The only disadventure is that (depending on the switching mode)

half of the traffic will run twice over the LAN but if there is enough bandwidth

this should be of no concern.

I'm working for BT in Germany and we have both solutions in place for some

of our customer.
