How do I configure association between VRRP and NQA test instances on an S series switch

10

To configure association between VRRP and NQA test instances on an S series switch (except the S1700), perform the following operations:
1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
2. Run the interface interface-type interface-number[.subinterface-number ] command to enter the view of the interface to which the VRRP group belongs.
3. Run the vrrp vrid virtual-router-id track nqa admin-name test-name [ reduced value-reduced ] command to configure VRRP to track an NQA test instance.
By default, when the tracked NQA test instance becomes Down, the priority decreases by 10.
reduced value-reduced: specifies the value by which the VRRP priority reduces if the tracked NQA test instance becomes Down. The value ranges from 1 to 255. The minimum value of the priority is 0. Priority value 0 is reserved for special use. If a backup device receives a VRRP IPv6 Advertisement packet carrying the priority value of 0, the backup device immediately preempts the Master state.

Note: The NQA function is controlled by a license. The commands related to NQA can be used on a newly purchased device but does not take effect. To use the NQA function, apply for and purchase a license from a Huawei local office.

VRRP can also associate with BFD or a routing protocol to implement an active/standby switchover. For detailed configuration procedure, see section "Common VRRP Operations" at S1720&S2700&S3700&S5700&S6700&S7700&S9700 Common Operation Guide. The configuration method for the S9300 is the same as that for other switch models.

Do CE series switches support association between static routes and NQA test instances
Except the CE6810LI, all other CE series switches support association between static routes and NQA test instances. You can run the ip route-static ip-address { mask | mask-length } { nexthop-address | vpn-instance vpn-instance-name nexthop-address } track nqa admin-name test-name command to specify the administrator name of the NQA test instance bound to a static route and the name of the NQA test instance.
