Preconfiguring IRF member devices in standalone
mode
Perform the preconfiguration tasks on every IRF member device. These settings take effect on each
member device after their operating mode changes to IRF.

Assigning a member ID to each IRF member device

A device by default operates in standalone mode without an IRF member ID. You must assign it a unique
IRF member ID before changing its operating mode to IRF.
The member ID assigned to the device is saved in both active and standby MPUs. The standby MPU
might store a different member ID than the active MPU after an MPU replacement. For consistency, the
system updates the member ID in the active MPU automatically to the standby MPU when the difference
is detected.
To set a member ID for the device in standalone mode:
Step
1.
(Optional.) Verify the
member ID assignment
status.
2.
Enter system view.
3.
Assign an IRF member ID to
the device.

Specifying a priority for each member device

IRF member priority represents the possibility for a device to be elected the master in an IRF fabric. The
higher the priority, the higher the possibility.
To specify a priority for the device in standalone mode:
Step
1.
Enter system view.
2.
Specify a priority for the
device.

Binding physical interfaces to IRF ports

To establish an IRF connection between two devices, you must bind a minimum of one physical interface
to IRF-port 1 on one device and to IRF-port 2 on the other. For link redundancy and load sharing, bind
multiple physical interfaces to one IRF port.
