Cisco CCNA mock exam questions sample test – Question 191

.When executed on a HSRP group member named Router 10, what effect does the following command have?

Router10(config-if)# standby group 1 track serial0 25

A. It will cause the router to increase its HSRP priority by 25 if the Serial0 interface on the standby router goes down
B. It will cause the router to shut down the Serial0 interface if 25 packets have been dropped
C. It will cause the router to notify Router 25 is serial 0 goes down
D. It will cause the router to decrement its HSRP priority by 25 if Serial 0 goes down


Correct Answer: D

Explanation:
This command will cause the router to decrement its HSRP priority by 25 if Serial 0 goes down. Interface tracking can be configured in Hot Standby Routing Protocol (HSRP) groups
to switch traffic to the standby router if an interface goes down on the active router. This is accomplished by having the active router track its interface. If that interface goes down, the
router will decrement its HSRP priority by the value configured in the command. When properly configured, this will cause the standby router to have a higher HSRP priority, allowing it
to become the active router and to begin serving traffic.
When the standby router in an HSRP group is not taking over the active role when the active router loses its tracked interface, it is usually a misconfigured decrement value, such that
the value does not lower the HSRP priority of the active router far enough for the standby to have a superior priority value.
The command will not cause the router to increase its HSRP priority by 25 if the Serial0 interface on the standby router goes down. HSRP routers track their own interfaces, not those
of another router.
The command will not cause the router to shut down the Serial0 interface if 25 packets have been dropped. It will only do this if the link becomes unavailable.
The command will not cause the router to notify Router 25 is serial 0 goes down. The number 25 in the command is the decrement value, not the ID of another router.
