HSRP in Cisco 4506
Posted on 2004-09-18
I have two Cisco Catalys 4506 switches running in HSRP mode. I have 2950s cascaded to these switches. If I am giving a continuous ping from any computer connected either directly from the 4506 or 2950 sometimes I am getting request timed out and then gets reply. I have created VLANs in 4506s and are trunked to the 2950s. (Server/client mode)
HSRP part is working fine and the other switch is able to take over if the active switch fails.
The following configurations I have done regarding VLAN :
I have made both as VTP masters.
Domain I have set for both the same (given the name DC).
VTP Version : 2
Configuration Revision : 5
Maximum VLANs supported locally : 1005
Number of existing VLANs : 10
VTP Operating Mode : Server
VTP Domain Name : DC
VTP Pruning Mode : Enabled
VTP V2 Mode : Disabled
VTP Traps Generation : Disabled
I have given exactly the same configuration for both the switches so that if one fails other should be able to take over fully. This part works well even now except for some packet loss. Is this due the that both the swithes are configured as Master with the same domain ?
If this is the reason, How can I handle the VLAN related configurations for full redundancy and failover ?
Thanks and regards,
