Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 8.1.

Description

Configure a Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) router’s priority cost for becoming the master default router. The router with the highest priority within the group becomes the master.

Options

priority—The value subtracted from the configured VRRP priority when the tracked interface or route is down, forcing a new master router election. The sum of all the costs for all interfaces or routes that are tracked must be less than or equal to the configured priority of the VRRP group.

Range: 1 through 254

Usage Guidelines

See Configuring a Logical Interface to Be Tracked.
