Guidelines and limitations

  • VRRP must be enabled at the global level using the router vrrp enable command. It must also be enabled at the interface level at which you configure VRRP.

  • A maximum of 8 IPv4 and 8 IPv6 VRRP groups are supported on an interface.

  • A maximum of 256 VRRP groups is supported on a router. The groups can be IPv4 or IPv6.

  • Supported virtual router identification (VRID) range is 1-255. A maximum of 8 VRIDs can be used to achieve a scale of 256 VRRP groups by using the same VRID across different interfaces.

  • Proxy-ARP and Active-Gateway are not supported in conjunction with VRRP.
