Servers and Traces showing real router IPs, not Standby

I am running HSRP on dual 6509's. In segment traces and logs on a DHCP server, I see references to BOTH real IP adddresses for a HSRP interface, NOT the standby address.

Is this correct? I thought devies talked only to the virtual (standby) address. Why would a server (DHCP in this instance) talk to both real addresses and no the standby?

You should make sure the dhcp server is handing out the right default gateway which would be the hsrp address . Look at a few of your clients and make sure the default gateway is correct and not using the standard interface address as the gateway .

Not a problem on clients who get a DHCP address. This seems a problem on servers who have fixed IP addresses.

The implementation to HSRP was to take the (then current) default gateway, and configure the "new" routers to act as standby's for it.

How would servers learn of the real addresses when their default has not changed?
