Description

Specify the routing device’s priority for becoming the designated routing devices. The routing device that has the highest priority value on the logical IP network or subnet becomes the network’s designated router. You must configure at least one routing device on each logical IP network or subnet to be the designated router. You also should specify a routing device’s priority for becoming the designated router on point-to-point interfaces.

Options

number—Routing device’s priority for becoming the designated router. A priority value of 0 means that the routing device never becomes the designated router. A value of 1 means that the routing device has the least chance of becoming a designated router.

Range: 0 through 255
Default: 128

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.
