Hi All,
I am using VRRP on a network and was wondering what the best practices are when it comes to applying DNS entries on the two devices I am using?  I have a DNS entry pointed at the VRRP # IP Address.  

Here's what my config looks like:

VRRP 10 ip address  (This address has a DNS entry).  
Lets call it : BN-10-VRRP-R1-R2.domain-name.com
I am using two Cisco switches setup with their ip addresses being:

1. Master
2. Backup

What's the best practice for this setup with regard to DNS?

I would think you already have it!  Using the virtual address will assure you can still reach it should one go offline.

I don't imagine it would hurt to add the switches by real name and IP into DNS so that you can connect directly to a single switch using name should the virtual name/IP not respond.
