We have 2 2600 routers.
One router has FE IP x.y.z.252 and the other router FE is x.y.z.253.
When I try to put the first command for hsrp i.e
standby 1 ip x.y.z.254, then following error it shows.
"address cannot equal interface IP address"
Will anybody please let me know why this error it is showing ? and any solution to this ?
Thanks in advance.
First, try to revise the IOS SOFTWARE, perhaps this IOS not permit configuring HSRP.
If the IOS permit to configure HSRP try:
Interface Fastethernet X/X
no ip redirects
Standby 1 preemt
before to configure the standby ip XXXX.XXXX.XXXX.XXXX
The IOS is 12.3(3) on both the routers.
standby command works well on the other router.
But the one in consideration does give the error.
I tried to put no ip redirects and then stanby 1 preempt firstly, but still it did not work.
One more thing .254 is nowhere used.
Thanks and Regards,
That error message indicates that the router thinks that the address has been used somewhere. Can you post the configuration commands on all of the interfaces of the router.
