Dell Command Line Reference Guide for the S4048–ON System



Configure up to 12 virtual router IP addresses in the VRRP group. To start sending VRRP packets, set at least one virtual IP address for the VRRP group.

To delete one or more virtual IP addresses, use the no virtual-address ip-address1 [... ip-address12] command.

Enter an IP address of the virtual router in dotted decimal format. The IP address must be on the same subnet as the interface’s primary IP address.
... ip-address12
(OPTIONAL) Enter up to 11 additional IP addresses of virtual routers in dotted decimal format. Separate the IP addresses with a space. The IP addresses must be on the same subnet as the interface’s primary IP address.

Usage Information

The VRRP group only becomes active and sends VRRP packets when you configure a virtual IP address. When you delete the virtual address, the VRRP group stops sending VRRP packets.

A system message appears after you enter or delete the virtual-address command.

To guarantee that a VRRP group becomes MASTER, configure the VRRP group’s virtual IP address with the same address as the interface’s primary IP address and change the priority of the VRRP group to 255.

You can ping the virtual IP addresses configured in all VRRP groups.
