HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and the Other Stan

Uplinks changed from switchports to trunk ports.

I also needed to make changes to the 6509 Catos to allow trunking and set the native vlan and allowed vlans for the link.

After doing the above however, when you connect to the MSFCs on the 6509s and issue a Show Standby Brief command, it lists both MSFCs as being State = Active; Active Address = Local ; Standby Addr= Unknown.

Both 6509s can ping the physical 3550 switch vlan address, but when you try to ping from the two MSFCs, only the actual primary gateway(priority 200) will successfully ping the 3550 switch vlan address. I have checked all the connections and there are no hardware errors. The secondary vlan uses the default priority of 100, tracking 2 interfaces with different decremement values as shown. In order to restore connectivity I had to shutdown vlan 711 on the standby box(HOSTNAMEBC2). This is a server access switch so I need to restore redundancy asap. Anybody any ideas on this ?

Re: HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and

are you getting reply when pinging msfc 2physical ip address of interface vlan 711 from msfc 1 and vice versa.

Re: HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and

No.... if I ping vlan 711 ip address x.x.x.5 on the 3550 switch, it will only ping from hostnameBC1, not hostnameBC2. However, if I connect to the Supervisor engine on the 6509, I can ping from both SupervisorBC1 and SupervisorBC2. Please remember that the above happens when the vlan is enabled on both MSFCs.. I had to shut the Vlan down on the redundant router in order to get it all to work. Once the vlan is shut down on the redundant router, I can ping the 3550 vlan 711 from both MSFCs.

Hi,

In the first place, can HOSTNAMEBC1 ping to X.X.X.4 of HOSTNAMEBC2, and can HOSTNAMEBC2 ping to to X.X.X.3 of HOSTNAMEBC1? Do "show ip arp vlan 711" to verify.

If the ping fails, kindly make sure VLAN 711 spans these two switches. Check your trunk config, etc.

Thank you.

Re: HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and

The below text is missing from the top of the original posting.... sorry guys.

Hi

I recently made changes to a 3550 access layer vlan. I needed to make the following changes:

Vlan IP Address from 7th to 5th useable address in subnet.

Removed IP Default Gateway and replaced with Default IP Route to same address.(IP Routing needed to be enabled here)

Uplinks changed from switchports to trunk ports.

Re: HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and

is trunking is configured between 3550 and 6500 and hsp configured between them.

if my understanding of your network is correct ...then check the trunk configuration between them

if u r dot1q then check native vlan is same for both the ends.

Hi

Yes, Trunking from 3550 to 6509, and between the two 6509 MSFCs HSRP is running. Dot1q between the 3550 and the 6509 and native vlan is 711 on both ends. No problems with the trunking.

Re: HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and

Hi,

You mentioned that you can ping the 3550 switch (vlan 711 ip address x.x.x.5) from both SupervisorBC1 and SupervisorBC2. Whether the CatOS sc0 is on Vlan 711 or not, the above test indicates that you should also be able to ping the 3550 switch from both MSFC hostnameBC1 and hostnameBC2.

Please do "sh ip arp vlan 711" on both MSFCs and check whether x.x.x.5 is successfully resolved? Also, can both MSFCs ping each other on Vlan 711?

If your problem persists, most likely it's Layer 2 issue. Verify all VLAN and trunk config on all the 3 switches. Also verify the resultant STP topology of VLAN 711 on the 3 switches.

HTH.

Thank you.

Re: HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and

Hi,

Try to make HSRP Group other than 0, and after making it once reboot both the switches.

Thank you.

Re: HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and

Hi,

What is the IOS version running on the MSFC's. Also which Sup's are being used in the chassis.

Seems to be some abnormal issue, it feels like both the MSFC are not able to see the hello packets from each other.That's why they both are claiming to be active on the same group.

What happens when you shut the vlan 711 off on BC1 box. Does the other MSFC take over and routes ??

Did you try connecting both the switches directly and see if the behaviour is still same.

HTH,

Re: HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and

Hi All

I went on-site last night to figure this out and make the same changes to a number of other Server access switches.

I noticed that the g0/2 uplink led was flashing amber, even though the trunk was up, the interface was up and there were no errors. I disconnected it, re-enabled the vlan on the standby MSFC but still the same problem. I had another fiber with me so I swapped it out and hey presto, its working. Sho Standby Brief shows primary and standby correctly now. Its as if the IOS considered the port to be UP/UP but in actual fact it wasn't. The other servers were changed without incident so was not on-site for too long..:-)

Thanks for everybodies input around this problem, it was greatly appreciated.

Re: HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and

Hi Paul,

It's indeed a weird issue. Please update us if you have new findings.

In most of such cases that I encountered, the typical causes are as follows:

(1) Both MSFCs have inbound ACL on the VLAN interface, which implicitly denies HSRP messages (UDP port 1985).

(2) Or, in the case of "routers on a stick" model, either the VLAN is not created on one of the switches or the VLAN is not allowed on one of the trunks.

Thank you.

Re: HSRP shows both MSFCs to be Active instead of one Active and

Hi,

Reconfigure SC1 interface for management of your switch (Vlan 711) and reconfigure SC0 for native VLAN 1 - "set interface SC0 1 0.0.0.0" and close the interface "set interface SC0 down".

I've experienced similar problems and changing the management interface on the CAT resolved this problem.

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks Chris
