Re: HSRP vs VRRP for IPv6 on IOS-XE - rekindling an old flame

VRRP is to HSRP what 802.1q is to ISL...

I highly recommend using VRRP instead of HSRP because:

1.      It is a more robust protocol
2.      It is vendor agnostic
3.      Being vendor agnostic it is more likely to have a continuing future.

Does anyone still use ISL?

Yeah I see the disconnect. I'm assuming that what I see is what I get. 
Which means I'm going to stick with HSRP. If our AS team gives me any 
good feedback that I can share I will do so. Thanks Nick.

XE: v4: HSRPv1, HSRPv2, VRRP                v6: HSRPv2

Not particularly relevant to the original question - however, I'd like
to mention that we've been using IPv6 VRRP on our Juniper routers for
well over a year. No particular problems so far.
