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?

    Hot Standby Routing Protocol or HSRP, is a Cisco proprietary protocol

    can be applied to your device
    CORESW1-6509(config)#interface VLAN 100
    CORESW1-6509(config-if)#ip address 156.50.196.2
    CORESW1-6509(config-if)#standby 1 ip 156.50.196.1


    CORESW2-6509(config)#interface VLAN 100
    CORESW2-6509(config-if)#ip address 156.50.196.3
    CORESW2-6509(config-if)#standby 1 ip 156.50.196.1
