    Setting the IP Interface Priority

    Use the ip initial-sequence-preference command to set the preference value on an IP or IPv6 interface at the subinterface level. To configure the interface as high-priority, specify the value of the initial sequence preference as 1. To configure the interface as low-priority, specify the value as 0.

    To set the priority for the IPv4 or IPv6 interface, you can do one of the following:

    • From Subinterface Configuration mode, explicitly configure the IPv4 interface as high-priority:
      host1(config-subif)#ip initial-sequence-preference 1
    • From Subinterface Configuration mode, explicitly configure the IPv6 interface as low-priority:
      host1(config-subif)#ipv6 initial-sequence-preference 0
