preempt

Permits (preempts) a backup router with a higher priority value to become the master router.

Syntax
preempt
Parameters
None
Default
Enabled
Command Mode
INTERFACE-VRRP
Usage Information
VRRP uses preempt to determine what happens after a VRRP backup router becomes the Master. With preempt enabled by default, VRRP switches to a backup if that backup router comes online with a priority higher than the new Master router. If you disable preempt, VRRP switches only if the original Master recovers or the new Master fails. The no version of this command disables preemption.
Example
