HSRP - Multiple interfaces on same router

I have an AS5300 with 2 Ethernet interfaces. I have 2 backbone switches that I want to connect the interfaces to. If my primary backbone switch fails I want the AS5300 ethernet interface on the secondary backbone switch to activate. Can I do this using HSRP on the AS5300? Essentially I want both ethernet interfaces of the AS5300 to be on the same network, cabled and ready to go.

Re: HSRP - Multiple interfaces on same router

Hi Holtz

as far as my understanding goes :

---- Backbone Swx (1)

AS 5300

---- Backbone Swx (2)

am i right with the network presentation ?

if yes .. then

you will be able to have redundancy with the other link make sure you use the track feature which will not only monitor the configured interfaces but also the interface on the other side of the same router

For Example : 5300(config-if)#standby track eth 0

Re: HSRP - Multiple interfaces on same router

You are correct on the network presentation.

Does my config look something like

interface FastEthernet0

ip address

standby ip

standby priority 105

standby preempt

interface ethernet0

ip address


standby priority 104

standby preempt

standby trace fastethernet0

Basically I want to use fastethernet0 unless the switch (Sw1) it is connected to goes away. At that point switch to ethernet0. When Sw1 comes back I want to go back to fastehternet0.
