Enable VRRP for the master system (IPv4)

An example of how to enable VRRP version 3 on the master system for IPv4.

This task shows you how to enable VRRP version 3 on the dp0p1p1 interface of the master system (R1) and assign it to the 99 VRRP group.
  • The virtual address is 172.16.0.24/24
  • Preemption is enabled
  • R1 is assigned a priority of 150
  • The VRRP interface is defined to enable RFC-compliant MAC address handling
  1. Create the VRRP configuration node for dp0p1p1 on R1. This configuration enables VRRP on that interface. Assign the VRRP group and protocol version.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 99
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 99 version 3
  2. Specify the virtual address of the VRRP group.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 99 virtual-address 172.16.0.24
  3. Enable RFC-compliant MAC address handling and create the VRRP interface.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 99 rfc-compatibility
  4. Enable preemption.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 99 preempt true
  5. Set the priority of this system to 150.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 99 priority 150
  6. Commit the configuration.
    user@system# commit
  7. Optional: Display the configuration.
    user@system# show interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp
    vrrp {
         vrrp-group 99 {
             priority 150
             rfc-compatibility
             version 3
             virtual-address 172.16.0.24
         }
     }
VRRP version 3 is enabled on the master system for IPv4.
