Re: HSRP State=Virgin

As indicated in the debug, this is unknown state.

You should not see this.

What kind of device is IP-Address1 ???

Is it a Cisco device (I know HSRP is cisco proprietary, but maybe ...)

What type of cisco router ?

what software version ?

Thanks,

Gilles.

Re: HSRP State=Virgin

I believe Virgin is the (initial state). A group is in the Virgin (or Initial) state

when either:

1.The interface is down OR

2.The interface IP address is not configured OR

3."standby ip [address]" is not configured OR

4.Router is about to reload
