priority-value: Specifies the priority value, in the range of 0 to 255. The priority is inversely related to its value.

Usage guidelines

The port that has higher priority (lower priority value) becomes the key server. If the port and its peers have the same priority, MACsec compares the SCI values on the ports. The port with the lowest SCI value becomes the key server.

A port with priority 255 cannot become the key server. For a successful key server selection, make sure a minimum of one participant's key server priority is not 255.
