configure pim dr-priority
Configures the designated router (DR) priority that is advertised in PIM hello messages.
|ipv4||IPv4 address family (default).|
|ipv6||IPv6 address family.|
|vlan all||Apply to all VLANs.|
|dr-priority||Designated Router Priority for VLAN.|
|priority||Priority value for VLAN (default 1). The range is 0–4294967295.|
The default setting for dr-priority is 1.
The dr-priority option allows a network administrator to give preference to a particular router in the DR election process by giving it a numerically larger DR priority. The dr-priority option is included in every hello message, even if no DR priority is explicitly configured on that interface. This is necessary because priority-based DR election is only enabled when all neighbors on an interface advertise that they are capable of using the dr-priority option.
- If any one of the neighbor on the interface is not advertised the DR priority (not DR capable) then DR priority will not considered for the all the neighbors in the circuit, and the primary IP address will be considered for all the neighbors.
- The higher DR priority or higher primary address will be elected as DR.
