Specifying the time a router waits before taking control of the VIP

For more information, see Using the Pre-empt Delay Timer (PDT).


[no] preempt-delay-time 1-1600

Allows you to specify a time in seconds that this router will wait before taking control of the VIP and beginning to route packets. You can configure the timer on VRRP owner and backup routers.


If you have configured the preempt delay time (PDT) with a non-zero value, you must use the no form of the command to change it to 0 (zero.)

Default: 0 (zero) seconds.
