VRRP Questions

August 31st, 2017 in SWITCH 300-115 Go to comments

Quick VRRP overview:

+ is IETF RFC 3768 standard
+ supports maximum 255 groups
+ 1 active and some backups
+ Use multicast address 224.0.0.18
+ Tracking via objects
+ 1 sec hello timer, 3 sec hold time
+ Authentication: plaintext or MD5 authentication
+ Preemption is enabled by default
+ Virtual IP address can be the same as physical IP address (which is running VRRP)

Question 1

Explanation

Unlike HSRP or GLBP, VRPP is an open standard.

Question 2

Explanation

In VRRP, the active router is referred to as the master virtual router.

Question 3

Question 4

Question 5

Question 6

Question 7

Question 8

Explanation

VRRP has three authentication schemes:
+ No authentication
+ Plain text authentication
+ MD5 authentication

Reference: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/ios-xml/ios/ipapp_fhrp/configuration/12-4/fhp-12-4-book/fhp-vrrp.html

Question 9

Explanation

A VRRP router can use the same IP address of the physical interface (which is running that instance of VRRP) as the virtual IP address for the group so D is correct.

VRRP supports plaintext and MD5 authentications -> C is not correct.

Answer A is correct too, an example of configuring authentication is shown below:

Router(config)# interface Ethernet0/1
Router(config-if)# vrrp 1 ip 10.21.0.10
Router(config-if)# vrrp 1 priority 110
Router(config-if)# vrrp 1 authentication md5 key-string myVRRPKey timeout 30

So this question is a bit unclear about the number of correct answers. But answer A is not a distinguised feature of VRRP so we don’t choose it here.

Question 10

Question 11

Question 12

Explanation

To minimize network traffic, only the Master for each virtual router sends periodic VRRP Advertisement messages. A Backup router will not attempt to preempt the Master unless it has higher priority. This eliminates service disruption unless a more preferred path becomes
available.

    Can someone please explain Question 3 ?

    question 3 makes no sense. The answer seems odd also

    Q3 – VRRP can have multiple groups per vlan (1-255). VLAN number and VRRP Group number DOES NOT need to match.

    @BoZZ Can you explain a little more? The correct answer is the selection where the VLAN number and VRRP group number match.

    Q3 – VRRP default priority is 100. Hence, between answers A and B, A is correct because there is no need to manually configure priority to 100 as shown in answer B.

    For Q5: where is the entire diagram for premium, members?
    The answer says PC 1 and 3…but I do not see whole diagram.

    Q3 –> vrrp Priority default 100 ( Vlan is not a bug the vlan may be different )

    Hi,

    Regarding Q 9. why D not A?

    Authentication commands must be entered under the interface. can you enter it somewhere else?

    Would inserting the same ip address on both interfaces involved in the vrrp election and Virtual ip interface work?!

    Thanks.

    Hello AI,

    With VRRP, the VIP and an interface on the L3 switch or router can share/have the same ip address. The authentication command is entered under the interface in VRRP, same for HSRP and GLBP.

    I feel D and E are both correct because they are features unique to VRRP.

    question 10 and 11 are missing in questions.

    Q3 is so vague!!

    The below is from cisco website:

    Configuring VRRP Priority
    The valid priority range for a virtual router is from 1 to 254 (1 is the lowest priority and 254 is the highest).
    The default priority value for backups is 100. For devices whose interface IP address is the same as the primary virtual IP address (the master), the default value is 255.

    C. So according to the above,IP address of the int van 1 is the same as the primary virtual IP of vrrp group 1 making it the master of the party

    B. addresses are different making it backup, default is 100 – cisco doesn’t like us to repeat default config?

    A. again this is back up, default is 100 but we are trying to achieve some shenanigans here
    and decided to have it as 200

    I would probably go for A but each of the examples is valid, cisco really needs to stop this kind of questions, this is not even about knowing stuff but trying to figure what the hell they want

    Q4

    A. VRRP uses multicast address 224.0.0.18
    C. VRRP uses protocol identifier 112

    no need to explain this one

    Q3.
    People, like Lucky comment, priority 100 is default parameter and it will be not visible in configuration, then correct answer is A (the Q is “which statement is TRUE”)

  17. lalaversa

    Q5.
    It’s impossible answer correctly without a draw of PCs connections correlate to the exhibit. The only correct answer reading the question is surely “D”…. the other answer live in fantasy world…

  18. lalaversa

    Q7.
    Answer wrong !!! Correct are B D E.
    The configuration VRRP priority of the interface is 105, correct D (track eventually decrement 15, then it’s not to be 120 like on answer A… ask actually priority doesn’t that will be).
    In exibit track object1 is in state down then tracking is starting and decrement priority to 95 asap… also B is correct togheter answer E (if another router has priority default at least).
    Pitfall Q&A because B is correct only if E is correct.

  19. lalaversa
    May 6th, 2018

    Q9.
    D and E are correct answers but also A is not wrong.
    This Q&A will have two or three answers ? If it will be two, E is sure…. but for A or D the choise is very hard…
    Usually black hole to make the answer wrong.

    Q10.
    too vague, let’s trust the answer….

    Q11.
    like Q10, too vague, let’s trust the answer….

    can someone explain Q5? I don’t understand it

  25. terrance

    Q7 also makes no sense?? how is the priority 120? it says 105, and if it is decremented by 15 it would be 90??

  26. Raito
    June 11th, 2018

    Q7:

    Priority is 95 AFTER it has been decremented by 15, because you can see that the interface which is tracked is already in state DOWN. So 95 + 15 = 120, which must have been manually configured.

    But I do not get why the master router cannot be preempted if some other router has a higher priority?

    Q5
    impossible to answer wihtout PC’s configuration, but it is missing

  28. bloke

    Q7:
    A, C, E is also correct. Priority 105 is after decrement from 120 tested on real equipment

    @Raito, 95 + 15 = 120? Oh dear…

    Q9:
    C, D, and E are all valid VRRP configurations
    But C is the ‘most’ correct.
    The reason is that ‘preempt’ is enabled by default on VRRP (its off by default in HSRP)
    So with answers D and E, the presence of this command makes them less correct than C
