Virtual Router Group Operation controls
Set Virtual Router
Group to Backup
Forces the master virtual router group into backup mode. This is generally used for passing
master control back to a preferred switch once the preferred switch has been returned to
service after a failure. When this command is executed, the current master gives up control
and initiates a new election by temporarily advertising its own priority level as 0 (lowest).
After the new election, the virtual router forced into backup mode by this command will
resume master control in the following cases:
This switch owns the virtual router (the IP addresses of the virtual router and its IP interface
are the same)
This switch's virtual router has a higher priority and preemption is enabled.
There are no other virtual routers available to take master control.
