configure vrrp vlan vrid dont-preempt

configure vrrp vlan vlan_name vrid vridval dont-preempt


Specifies that a higher priority backup router does not preempt a lower priority master.

Syntax Description


Specifies the name of a VRRP VLAN.


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


The default setting is preempt.

Usage Guidelines

The preempt mode controls whether a higher priority backup router preempts a lower priority master. dont-preempt prohibits preemption. The router that owns the virtual IP address always preempts, independent of the setting of this parameter.


The following command disallows preemption:

configure vrrp vlan vlan-1 vrid 1 dont-preempt


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
