Does anyone have any insight on determining the active router for HSRP? I don't mean how do you do it, I mean how would you determine active state for a group of 20 subnets? How would you go about determining subnet 1 should be active on router 1 and subnet 2 should be active on router 2? Is there any technical reasons I should consider?
Basically I have two 6500 distribution layer switches configured with a port-channel between them and they are connected to a bunch of access layer switches. I'm using HSRP on the 6500's. My first thought is to simply stagger the VLANS so lets say Vlan 10 is active on 6500 #1 and then Vlan 20 is active on 6500 #2 and so on.
The common design is to have STP root and HSRP active on the same switch. Most networks I have seen have STP root/HSRP active for all Odd numbered VLANs on one core/distribution and the other core for even numbered VLANs.
