Virtual Redundancy Groups (VRRP/HSRP) are out of sync across vPC cluster members for Cisco

Vendor

Cisco

Description

Indeni will identify when two devices are part of a cluster and alert if the redundancy group configuration is different.

Remediation Steps

1.Configure the same FHRP groups, using the same VLAN ID, group ID and virtual IP for the configured FHRP on both peer switches.

2.For more information please review the next HSRP & VRRP configuration guides:

How does this work?

This script logs into the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and retrieves the HSRP state using the "show hsrp" command. The output includes a complete report of the HSRP state across all configure interfaces.

Why is this important?

This script logs into the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and retrieves the HSRP state using the "show hsrp" command. The output includes a complete report of the HSRP state across all configure interfaces.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

Correlating all the HSRP groups across both vPC members can only be done manually, comparing the HSRP configuration.
