create vrrp vlan vrid

create vrrp vlan [vlan_name | vlan_list] vrid [vridval | vrid_list]


Creates a VRRP instance on the switch.

Syntax Description


Specifies the name of a VRRP VLAN.

vlan_list VLAN list (1–4,094).

Specifies a VRID for the VRRP instance. The value can be in the range of 1‑255.

vrid_list List of virtual router IDs (1–255).



Usage Guidelines

VRRP Router IDs can be used across multiple VLANs. You can create multiple VRRP routers on different VLANs. VRRP router IDs need not be unique to a specific VLAN.



The total number of supported VRRP router instances is dependent on the switch hardware. For more information, see the ExtremeXOS Release Notes.

Before configuring any VRRP router parameters, you must first create the VRRP instance on the switch. If you define VRRP parameters before creating the VRRP, you might see an error similar to the following:

Error: VRRP VR for vlan vrrp1, vrid 1 does not exist.
Please create the VRRP VR before assigning parameters.
Configuration failed on backup MSM, command execution aborted!

If this happens, create the VRRP instance and then configure its parameters.


The following command creates a VRRP router on VLAN vrrp-1, with a VRRP router ID of 1:

create vrrp vlan vrrp-1 vrid 1


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.

VLAN and VR list options added in ExtremeXOS 22.3.

Platform Availability

This command is available on platforms that support the appropriate license. For complete information about software licensing, including how to obtain and upgrade your license and which licenses support the VRRP feature, see the Switch Engine 32.2 Feature License Requirements document.
