%STANDBY-6-STATECHANGE:

I have two 7206vxr routers and running hsrp for redundancy. I keep getting

%STANDBY-6-STATECHANGE: between the two routers but no there were no linkstate and no routing protocol change states. Does anyone know why hsrp changes state without linkup/linkdown and without routing protocol flap???

Thanks

Re: %STANDBY-6-STATECHANGE:

Have a look at the following: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk648/tk362/technologies_tech_note09186a0080094afd.shtml#t1

It's geared towards Catalyst switches but applies to routers as well. It's not necessary for a link state or routing protocol state to change for HSRP to flap -- all that has to happen for a standby router to become active is for it to miss 3 HELLOs (by default) from the active router.

Re: %STANDBY-6-STATECHANGE:

I'd be interested in seeing an excerpt your log file for this.

We recently had the same problem on a pair of our 7200's where the state changes would occur within ms of each other ruling out missed hello's.
