OS10 Enterprise Edition User Guide Release


Router priority

Router priority determines the designated router for the network. The default router priority is 1. When two routers are attached to a network, both attempt to become the designated router. The router with the higher router priority takes precedence. If there is a tie, the router with the higher router ID takes precedence. A router with a router priority set to zero cannot become the designated router or backup designated router.

If not assigned, the system selects the router with the highest priority as the DR. The second highest priority is the BDR. Priority rates from 0 to 255, with 255 as the highest number with the highest priority.
