Packet Tracer – Troubleshoot HSRP
In this activity, you will troubleshoot and resolve the HSRP issues in the network. You will also verify that all the HSRP configurations meet the network requirement.
Background / Scenario
Currently the users can access www.cisco.pka. The network has been updated to use HSRP to ensure the network availability to the users. You must verify that the users can still access the website if one of the routers is down. R1 should always be the active router if it is functioning.
- HSRP virtual router is 192.168.1.254.
- HSRP standby group is 1.
- DNS server is 188.8.131.52.
- R1 should always be the active router when it is functioning properly.
