Enabling the response to a ping request

The backup router can be enabled to respond to pings using the following command. For more information, see Pinging the virtual IP of a backup router.


[no] router vrrp virtual-ip-ping

Enables or disables the response to a ping request for the switch. When enabled, all VRs that are not owners and are not explicitly disabled (see virtual-ip-ping enabled command) respond to ping requests sent to the VIP when the backup VR is acting as master.

Default: Response to virtual IP ping is disabled.
