Creating or modifying an IPv4 virtual MAC address

You create an IPv4 virtual MAC address by assigning it a virtual router ID. You can then you bind the virtual MAC address to an interface. You cannot bind multiple virtual router IDs to the same interface. To verify the virtual MAC address configuration, you should display and examine the virtual MAC address and the interfaces bound to the virtual MAC address.

Parameters for configuring a virtual MAC address

  • VrID

    The virtual router ID that identifies the virtual MAC address. Possible values: 1 to 255.

  • ifnum

    The interface number (slot/port notation) to be bound to the virtual MAC address.

To configure a virtual MAC address

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, expand System > Network and then click VMAC.
