Hi
Can I give the same ip address for both the interface and standby ip?
Like this-

interface FastEthernet0/0
ip address 10.1.1.2 255.255.255.192

standby version 2
standby 1 ip 10.1.1.2

I think they can be in the same subnet but cant have the same ip .am i correct or wrong?
Please advice

    If I recall correctly from my studies last night, VRRP will creat virtual IP and MAC address.

    The idea of a virtual IP address is that it is able to move dynamically from one location (port or device) to another based on factors that are considered by the FHRP. So binding that IP to a set location may defeat the purpose.

    Hi xnx,
    Thanks very much for the helpful link. Its really great doc whoever made it ,summarized to the point.
    But in the doc it says that, HSRP don't support Load Balancing, to which I dont agree. I think HSRP does support Load Balancing with two HSRP groups.
    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    With Regards

    HSRP doesn't officially support Load Balancing. If you have two routers/L3 Switches, you can create 2 groups and make 1 router active for one group and the other active for the other group. You have to manually configure the clients so that half of them use one group's Virtual IP and the other half use the other group's Virtual IP. This is a sort of Kludge, rather than true load balancing like with certain other FHRPs.
