Working with HSRP on a Production Router

I want to setup and test HSRP, but I don't have a testbed or much downtime. Can I setup HSRP and my users still use the assigned addresses on the interfaces.

Ex.

10.10.10.1 is their def. gateway.

Create a HSRP address at 10.10.10.9.

I use the .9 for testing. They use the .1 address and aren't interrupted.

Hi,

Yes, they can.

If you don't want to change the default gateway on the user workstation and then you need use that address as the standby (HSRP) address. Set the priority to something higher than 100 on the active router.

You need a config like this one.

Active Router:

int f0/0

ip address 10.10.10.9 255.255.255.0

standby 1 ip 10.10.10.1

standby 1 priority 110

Standby Router:

int f0/1

ip add 10.10.10.10 255.255.255.0

standby 1 ip 10.10.10.1

Hi, do not forget to use the preempt command as well. Standby 1 preempt.
