- Keeping a VIP Address in the Backup State
You can force a VIP address to always stay in backup state. This operation is helpful in maintenance or testing of a VRRP deployment.
When a VIP address is forced to stay in backup state, it does not participate in VRRP state transitions. Also, it cannot become master even if all other nodes go down.
To force a VIP address to stay in backup state, you set the priority of the associated VMAC address to zero. To ensure that none of the VIP addresses of a node handle traffic during a maintenance process on the node, set all the priorities to zero.
You can the set the priority of a VMAC address while adding or modifying the address.
