Configuring preempt mode on VRRP backup routers

This command applies to VRRP backup routers only and is used to minimize network disruption caused by unnecessary preemption of the master operation among backup routers. It is executed in VRID context.


[no] preempt-mode

Disables or re-enables preempt mode. In the default mode, a backup router coming up with a higher priority than another backup that is currently operating as master will take over the master function.

Using the no form of the command disables this operation, thus preventing the higher-priority backup from taking over the master operation from a lower-priority backup.

This command does not prevent an owner router from resuming the master function after recovering from being unavailable.

Default: Enabled
