HSRP & VRRP Questions 2

Question 1


The “virtual MAC address” is 0000.0c07.acXX (XX is the hexadecimal group number) so it is using HSRPv1.

Note: HSRP Version 2 uses a new MAC address which ranges from 0000.0C9F.F000 to 0000.0C9F.FFFF.

Question 2

Question 3


From the output exhibit, we notice that the key-string of R1 is “Cisco123!” (letter “C” is in capital) while that of R2 is “cisco123!”. This causes a mismatch in the authentication so we have to fix their key-strings.


key-string [encryption-type] text-string: Configures the text string for the key. The text-string argument is alphanumeric, case-sensitive, and supports special characters.
