I have two Catalyst6509 connected through trunk.
Have fastEthernets of both 6509 into a VLAN. Connected these fastEthernets to a Layer-2 switch and associated the interfaces in the L-2 switch to the same VLAN. Configured HSRP on the 6509 Vlans.
That means HSRP messages have two paths to between each Cat6509.
1. Through the trunk
2. Through the L2 switch.
My question here is, which path will the HSRP hello message take?
