configure esrp add master

configure esrp esrpDomain add master vlan_name


Adds a master VLAN to an ESRP domain.

Syntax Description

esrpDomain Specifies the name of an ESRP domain.
vlan_name Specifies the name of the master VLAN.



Usage Guidelines

You must configure one master VLAN for each ESRP domain. A master VLAN can belong to one ESRP domain only. An ESRP domain contains one master and zero or more member VLANs.

The master VLAN:
  • Exchanges ESRP PDUs, hello messages, and data between a pair of ESRP-enabled switches.

  • Contains the total number of active physical ports that are counted when determining the master ESRP domain. The switch with the highest number of active ports takes priority.

Master VLANs can have their own set of ports, and member VLANs can have a different set of ports. The state of the ESRP device determines whether the ports in the master and member VLANs are in the forwarding or blocking state.


The following command adds VLAN purple to the ESRP domain esrp1 as the master VLAN:

configure esrp esrp1 add master purple
