VDX6740 : VRRP-Ev3-IPv4

VDX6740 : VRRP-Ev3-IPv4

New Contributor III

Hello Experts,

Does VDX 6740(7.3.0aa) support VRRP-Ev3 with IPv4, I did not find the option on the switch to configure it, I also referred to the document but it only talks about VRRP-Ev3 IPv6

Is VRRP-Ev3-IPv4 supported?

It doesn't look like we have an option to configure ipv4 vrrp-e v3. We only have ipv6 vrrp-e v3 support.

Hello Pavan Pawar,

vrrp-e (ipv4) is supported on 7.3.0aa. It has to be configured under the rbridge. Pg 1172


Hello Deep,

Thanks for taking a look at the request.

I can enable the vrrp-extended on the switch for IPv4 but there is no option to enable VRRP version 3 under it, Refer to config snip :

extreme01(config)# rbridge-id 1

extreme01(config-rbridge-id-1)# protocol vrrp

extreme01(config-rbridge-id-1)# protocol vrrp-extended

extreme01(config-rbridge-id-1)# int ve 100

extreme01(config-rbridge-Ve-100)# ip address

extreme01(config-rbridge-Ve-100)# vrrp-extended-group 100 ?
