We have a Client-Server enterprise network, and nature of servers is to broadcast some stats/info to all the clients.
We are using two 6509-E at core with HSRP to provide the redundancy for servers. I have attached the network layout (not the real one) with some description with this thread. On both switches we have configured “ip helper-addresses” to forward the broadcast to multiple destinations(different VLANs). Every thing is working fine with respect to HSRP.
Under normal circumstances, both ACTIVE and STANDBY hsrp switches generates broadcast which causing duplication of every broadcast packet and Client end receiving every packet twice. Cisco already claimed that standby switch will forward the broadcast. As an alternate TAC has advised to use the TCL script as a work around which we attempted to however no success at the end.
Please let me know if some one can help me in modifying TCL script.
