Configures the priority used in the designated router and backup designated router election algorithm for all the interfaces within the area.
|area_identifier||Specifies an OSPFv3 area, a four-byte, dotted decimal number.|
|priority||Specifies a priority range. The range is 0 through 255.|
The default setting is 1.
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 all the interfaces in area 126.96.36.199 to not be selected as the designated router:
# configure ospfv3 area 188.8.131.52 priority 0
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.2.
This command is available on platforms with Base license, or higher, as described in the Switch Engine 32.2 Feature License Requirements document.
On switches with a Core or Premier license, the non-zero interface priority takes effect; on switches with and Advanced Edge or Base license, the default interface priority is 0.
