Cisco 3750 Vlan Setup

I have inherited a site with 3 x 3750's joined together in a single stack.

The current vlan setup is below and just woundered why you would use standby IP's on some vlans and secondary IP's on others when the switches are a single stack.

Thank you in advance.

Yep... no peers. You can probably delete the HSRP configs.

Ah the fun of taking over a new network with limited documentation. :-)

"standby ip" defines the virtual address in HSRP. There's probably another router or switch. Do a "show standby brief" to verify.

The "secondary" ip addresses could be there for a migration from one addressing scheme to another.

Then again, they could be remnants of some previous function and are no longer relevant. If you don't see any HSRP neighbors, then you could probably remove the standby statements.

Check the arp cache over a period of days. If you don't see any entries for the some of the address ranges, then you could remove those ip addresses.

Just be ready to put things back once the phone rings. :-o

Thank you..

I believe the intial setup was 2 x 3560's running HSRP therefore the standby would be relevent.

Would I be correct to assume that as the 3750's are a single 3 switch stack then HSRP is not needed as if one switch fails the VLAN Information / IP's is still contactable with the other switches in the stack ?

Or do I need to read a little more ;-)
