    Release Information

    Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

    Statement introduced in Junos OS 11.3 for the QFX Series.

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 14.1x53-D20 for the OCX Series.

    Description

    In a Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) configuration, determine whether or not a backup router can preempt a master router:

    • preempt—Allow the master router to be preempted.

      Note: By default, a higher-priority backup router can preempt a lower-priority master router.

    • no-preempt—Prohibit the preemption of the master router. When no-preempt is configured, the backup router cannot preempt the master router even if the backup router has a higher priority.

    The remaining statement is explained separately.

    Default

    By default the preempt statement is enabled, and a higher-priority backup router preempts a lower-priority master router even if the preempt statement is not explicitly configured.

    Required Privilege Level

    interface—To view this statement in the configuration.

    interface-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
