Upgrading to HRSP without downtime

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Bjarke Andersen, Jan 16, 2013.

  1. I received a project of a network that needs upgrading.

    The previous network admin, have made one single catalyst router for the
    entire network.

    In the upgrade I would like to change this router task with HRSP for better
    redundancy, however I would like to avoid downtime for the network.

    Could I make HRSP standby address the same as the catalyst's current
    Interface address, and then afterwards change the interface address and
    avoid downtime for the network?
