Specifies the VRRP version 2 authentication type for a VRRP group on an interface.

set interfaces interface vrrp vrrp-group group-id authentication type type
delete interfaces interface vrrp vrrp-group group-id authentication type
show interfaces interface vrrp vrrp-group group-id authentication type

An interface is not required to authenticate itself to the VRRP group.

interface
The type keyword and identifier of an interface. For detailed keywords and arguments that can be specified as interfaces, refer to Supported Dataplane Interfaces.
group-id
The identifier of a VRRP group to which the interface belongs. The identifier ranges from 1 through 255.
type
The type of authentication to be used. The type is either of the following:
  • ah: IP Authentication Header (AH) protocol
  • plaintext-password: Plain-text password authentication

Configuration mode


interfaces interface {
    vrrp {
        vrrp-group group-id {
            authentication {
                type type
            }
        }
    }
}

Use this command to set the VRRP version 2 authentication type for a VRRP group on an interface.

If the authentication type is set for VRRP authentication, a password must also be specified. If the authentication type is defined and a password is not set, the system generates an error when you try to commit the configuration.

Use the set form of the command to specify the VRRP version 2 authentication type for a VRRP group on an interface.

Use the delete form of the command to delete the VRRP version 2 authentication type for a VRRP group on an interface.

  • You cannot delete the VRRP authentication type without also deleting the VRRP password. If you do delete the authentication type, the system generates an error when you try to commit the configuration.
  • If you delete both the VRRP authentication password and authentication type, VRRP authentication is disabled on the interface.

Use the show form of the command to view the VRRP version 2 authentication type for a VRRP group on an interface.
