VRRP enables you to preempt a virtual router backup that has taken over for a failing virtual router master with a high-priority virtual router backup that has become available.
By default, a preemptive scheme is enabled. A backup high-priority virtual router that becomes available takes over for the backup virtual router that was elected to become the virtual router master. If you disable preemption, the backup virtual router that is elected to become the virtual router master remains the master until the original virtual router master recovers and becomes the master again.
Note This preemption does not apply to the primary IP address.
If the virtual IP address is also the IP address for the interface, then preemption is applied.
This command does not require a license.
Note Make sure the LAN Base Services license is installed on the switch to enable Layer 3 interfaces.
