configure ospfv3 interface priority

configure ospfv3 [vlan vlan_name | tunnel tunnel_name | [vlan | tunnel] all] priority priority


Configures the priority used in the designated router and backup designated router election algorithm for one or all OSPFv3 interface(s).

Syntax Description

vlan_name Specifies an IPv6 configured VLAN.
tunnel_name Specifies an IPv6 tunnel.
all Specifies all IPv6 configured VLANs or all IPv6 tunnels.
priority Specifies a priority range. The range is 0 through 255.


The default setting is 1.

Usage Guidelines

When two routers are attached to a network, both attempt to become the designated router. The one with the higher priority takes precedence. If there is a tie, the router with the higher router ID takes precedence. Setting the value to 0 ensures that the router is never selected as the designated router or backup designated router.


The following command sets the priority of the interface VLAN corporate to 10:

configure ospfv3 domain ospf-internal vlan corporate priority 10


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.2.

Platform Availability

This command is available on platforms with an Advanced Edge or Core license as described in the Feature License Requirements document. On switches with Core license, the non-zero interface priority will take effect; on switches with Advanced Edge license, the default interface priority is 0.
