Cisco Port redundancy problem

Last Modified: 2013-12-14
Hey guys,

Okay here is the problem. I have two Cisco 7301 routers both run into a 3550 switch to two vlans.. one is on and the other has its three ports on the switch in shutdown mode.
Basically what i want is if the switch (its a layer 3 switch) IOS12.X detects a port go down on the ONLINE router.. to shut its three ports down and bring up the back three ports for the secondary router..

Any suggestions?
