Usage Guidelines

This command changes the priority of a VRRP router. If the VRRP router is the IP address owner (which means that the VRRP router IP address matches the VRRP VLAN IP address), the priority is 255 and cannot be changed. If the VRRP router is not the IP address owner, the priority can be changed to values in the range of 1 to 254.

To change the priority of the IP address owner or to make a different VRRP router the IP address owner, disable VRRP and reconfigure the affected switches to use VRRP router addresses that support the priorities you want to assign.


The following command configures a priority of 150 for VLAN vrrp-1:

configure vrrp vlan vrrp-1 vrid 1 priority 150


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
