Enable VRRP for the master system (IPv6)

An example of how to enable VRRP version 3 on the master system for IPv6.

This task shows you how to enable VRRP version 3 on the dp0p1p1 interface of R1 and assign the interface to VRRP group 41.
  • R1 is assigned a priority of 150
  • The VRRP interface is defined to enable RFC 3768-compliant MAC address handling
  1. Set the IPv6 address of the dp0p1p1 interface for R1.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 address 3003::300:1/64 
  2. Create the VRRP configuration node for dp0p1p1 on R1.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 41
    
  3. Enable VRRP on dp0p1p1. Assign the VRRP group and protocol version.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 41 version 3
  4. Specify the virtual address of the VRRP group.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 41 virtual-address 3003::300:2
  5. Specify the IPv6 link-local virtual address.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 41 virtual-address fe80::2
  6. Enable RFC 3768-compliant MAC address handling and create the VRRP interface.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 41 rfc-compatibility
  7. Set the priority of this system to 150.
    user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp vrrp-group 41 priority 150
  8. Commit the configuration.
    user@system# commit
  9. Optional: Display the configuration.
    user@system# show interfaces dataplane dp0p1p1 vrrp
    vrrp {
         vrrp-group 41 {
             priority 150
             rfc-compatibility
             version 3
             virtual-address 3003::300:2
         }
     }
VRRP version 3 is enabled on the master system for IPv6.
