Reconfiguring the priority for a backup

When you configure a backup in a VR, it is given a default priority of 100. This command is intended for use where it is necessary to establish a precedence among the backup routers on the same network or subnet in a given VR.


priority 1-254

Used in a VR context of a VLAN where the router is configured as a backup. This command changes the backup's priority and is used to establish the precedence of a backup where there are multiple backups belonging to the same network or subnet.


An owner is automatically assigned the highest priority, 255, which cannot be changed unless the owner status is reconfigured to backup.

Default: 100; Range: 1 - 254, where 1 is the lowest precedence
