Hello.
We're in the process of setting up two 6500s in an active/passive failover scenario with HSRP. These 2 layer3 switches are supporting WAN and IDF interfaces for the local backbone. I'm unsure about the OSPF defs on the secondary(passive) switch. Should they be identical to the primary(active) switch? Or, does the OSPF router process-id and area need to be different.

Thanks.

The area should be identical. The process-id is only being used internal of each 6500 so it doesnt matter if its equal or differs.
