Characteristics of VRs in a Group

When VRs are grouped together you need to choose a VR from the group and configure it as the primary VR using the CLI. Other VRs belonging to the group need to be added as secondary VRs. When a group is operational, the following approach maintains the same state across all VRs:

Other per VR configurations/properties should continue to work as-is, such as accept-mode and host-mobility. All secondary VRs send advertisements at 40 seconds intervals. Sending advertisements help Layer 2 switches in the network to learn VMACs on a secondary VR‘s VLAN. Sending at a slower rate reduces processing load at control plane, on VRRP peers.

The other properties of individual VRs present in a group are not altered from their current behavior.
