vrID6

The following operations can be performed on "vrID6":

add | rm | set | unset | bind | unbind | show

add vrID6

Adds a VMAC6 address to the NetScaler appliance.A Virtual MAC address (VMAC6) is a floating entity, shared by the nodes in a high availability, or active-active, or cluster setup.

Synopsys

add vrID6 <id> [-priority <positive_integer>] [-preemption ( ENABLED | DISABLED )] [-sharing ( ENABLED | DISABLED )] [-tracking <tracking>] [-preemptiondelaytimer <secs>] [-trackifNumPriority <positive_integer>] [-ownerNode <positive_integer>]

Arguments

id

Integer value that uniquely identifies a VMAC6 address.

Minimum value: 1

Maximum value: 255

priority

Base priority (BP), in an active-active mode configuration, which ordinarily determines the master VIP address.

Default value: 255

Minimum value: 0

Maximum value: 255

preemption

In an active-active mode configuration, make a backup VIP address the master if its priority becomes higher than that of a master VIP address bound to this VMAC address.

         If you disable pre-emption while a backup VIP address is the master, the backup VIP address remains master until the original master VIP's priority becomes higher than that of the current master.

Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED

Default value: ENABLED

sharing

In an active-active mode configuration, enable the backup VIP address to process any traffic instead of dropping it.

Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED

Default value: DISABLED

tracking

The effective priority (EP) value, relative to the base priority (BP) value in an active-active mode configuration. When EP is set to a value other than None, it is EP, not BP, which determines the master VIP address.

Available settings function as follows:

  • NONE - No tracking. EP = BP

  • ALL - If the status of all virtual servers is UP, EP = BP. Otherwise, EP = 0.

  • ONE - If the status of at least one virtual server is UP, EP = BP. Otherwise, EP = 0.

  • PROGRESSIVE - If the status of all virtual servers is UP, EP = BP. If the status of all virtual servers is DOWN, EP = 0. Otherwise EP = BP (1 - K/N), where N is the total number of virtual servers associated with the VIP address and K is the number of virtual servers for which the status is DOWN.

Default: NONE.

Possible values: NONE, ONE, ALL, PROGRESSIVE

Default value: NONE

preemptiondelaytimer

Preemption delay time in seconds, in an active-active configuration. If any high priority node will come in network, it will wait for these many seconds before becoming master.

Default value: 0

Minimum value: 1

Maximum value: 36000

trackifNumPriority

Priority by which the Effective priority will be reduced if any of the tracked interfaces goes down in an active-active configuration.

Default value: 0

Minimum value: 1

Maximum value: 255

ownerNode

In a cluster setup, assign a cluster node as the owner of this VMAC address for IP based VRRP configuration. If no owner is configured, ow ner node is displayed as ALL and one node is dynamically elected as the owner.

Default value: -1

Minimum value: 0

Maximum value: 31

Example

add vrID6 1

rm vrID6

Removes a specified VMAC6 entry or all VMAC6 entries from the NetScaler appliance.

Synopsys

rm vrID6 (<id> | -all)

Arguments

id

Integer value that uniquely identifies a VMAC6 address.

Minimum value: 1

Maximum value: 255

all

Remove all configured VMAC6 addresses from the NetScaler appliance.

set vrID6

Modifies parameters related to a VMAC address on the NetScaler appliance.

Synopsys

set vrID6 <id> [-priority <positive_integer>] [-preemption ( ENABLED | DISABLED )] [-sharing ( ENABLED | DISABLED )] [-tracking <tracking>] [-preemptiondelaytimer <secs>] [-trackifNumPriority <positive_integer>] [-ownerNode <positive_integer>]

Arguments

id

Integer value that uniquely identifies the VMAC address. The generic VMACaddress is in the form of 00:00:5e:00:01:<VRID>. For example, if you add a VRID with a value of 60 and bind it to an interface, the resulting VMAC address is 00:00:5e:00:01:3c, where 3c is the hexadecimal representation of 60.

Minimum value: 1

Maximum value: 255

priority

Example

bind vrID6

Binds the specified interfaces to a VMAC6 configuration.

Synopsys

bind vrID6 <id> (-ifnum <interface_name> ... | -trackifNum <interface_name> ...)

Arguments

id

Integer value that uniquely identifies a VMAC6 address.

Minimum value: 1

Maximum value: 255

ifnum

Interfaces to bind to the VMAC. Use spaces to separate multiple entries.

For a NetScaler appliance, specify the interface in C/U notation (for example, 1/3).For a cluster setup for configuring interface based VRRP, specify the interface in N/C/U notation(for example, 2/1/3) . where C can take one of the following values:

        * 0 - Indicates a mgmt port.

        * 1 - Indicates a 1 Gbps port.

        * 10 - Indicates a 10 Gbps port.

Note: Interface based VRRP is only applicable to a two-node cluster where one of node is in active state and the other in Spare. You must associate the VRID to the interfaces of both the nodes of the active-spare cluster setup. This is because unlike in a high availability setup, interface ID differs in a cluster setup.
