0

Article ID: KB34785 KB Last Updated: 27 Jul 2019Version: 1.0
Summary:

This article provides an example and explanation for the support of group ID 0 with VRRP.

Symptoms:

The technical documentation, Understanding VRRP, specifies that the VRRP group supports the range 0-255.

However, in RFC2338 and RFC3768, it specifies that the range is 1-255:

   VRID                    Virtual Router Identifier.  Configured item
                           in the range 1-255 (decimal).  There is no
                           default.
   VRID                    Virtual Router Identifier.  Configurable item
                           in the range 1-255 (decimal).  There is no
                           default.

Topology:
EX4300-1 ge-0/0/0 ---------------ge-0/0/0 EX4300-2

Solution:

In Junos, the group ID 0 for VRRP is supported. This can be seen as an extension to the RFC.
