Use this template to distribute common parameters for appliances deployed with Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP).
In an out-of-path deployment, one method for redirecting traffic to the EdgeConnect appliance is to configure VRRP on a common virtual interface. Possible scenarios are:
When no spare router port is available, a single appliance uses VRRP to peer with a router (or Layer 3 switch). This is appropriate for an out-of-path deployment in which no redundancy is needed.
A pair of active, redundant appliances use VRRP to share a common, virtual IP address at their site. This deployment assigns one appliance a higher priority than the other, thereby making it the Master appliance, and the other the Backup.
|Admin||Options are up (enable) and down (disable).|
|Advertisement Timer||Default is 1 second.|
|Authentication String||Clear text password for authenticating group members.|
|Preemption||Leave this selected/enabled so that after a failure, the appliance with the highest priority comes back online and again assumes primary responsibility.|
|Priority||The greater the number, the higher the priority. The appliance with the higher priority is the VRRP Master.|
