Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

If devices in a VRRP group use different VRRP version numbers, the VRRP group may fail to negotiate the status. This is because a VRRPv2-enabled device can only receive VRRPv2 Advertisement packets and discards the received VRRPv3 Advertisement packets. You can set the mode in which VRRP Advertisement packets are sent so that the VRRP group can negotiate the status.


  • Only VRRPv3 supports this command.

  • If the vrrp version-3 send-packet-mode command is used in the system view and interface view simultaneously, the configuration in the interface view takes effect.

If many VRRP groups are configured, v2v3-both is not recommended.


# Set the mode in which VRRP Advertisement packets are sent to v2-only.
