Specifies a virtual IPv6 link local address for the VRRP router instance.

Syntax Description


Specifies the name of a VRRP This command is available on the ExtremeSwitching X440-G2, X450-G2, X460-G2, X465, X590, X620, X670-G2, X690, X695, X870, 5320, 5420, 5520 series switches..


Specifies the VRID of a VRRP instance. To display the configured VRRP router instances, enter the show vrrp command.


Specifies a virtual link local address to be assigned to the VRRP instance.

Usage Guidelines

Each IPv6 VRRP instance is associated with one and only one virtual link local address, which serves as the source IP address for subsequent router announcement packets generated by the master VRRP router. The virtual link local address can be explicitly configured or generated automatically.

One way to explicitly configure the virtual link local address is to add it to the virtual IP address list with this command. The new link local address must match the FE80::/64 subnet, and it must match the address in use on all other router in this VRRP instance.

If no virtual link local address is configured, an appropriate address is generated automatically.



If an IPv4 address has been added to a VRRP router, you cannot later add any IPv6 address, so you cannot add a link local address.


The following example associates virtual IPv6 link local address fe80::1111 to VLAN vlan-1:

configure vrrp vlan vlan-1 vrid 1 add virtual-link-local fe80::1111


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.7.
