  • 1.  VRRP Subsystem Not Running - 2x EX2200-C

    Posted 09-08-2017 06:46

    Hi all, 


    I've set up two EX2200s with VRRP between them. However I'm getting the following message on both devices:


    root@EX1> show vrrp
    warning: vrrp subsystem not running - not needed by configuration.



    There's not much information I can find online about this issue specific to VRRP, configuration is fine and I've tried restarting the services, devices etc. Here's some more output, if you need more please let me know. Thanks for any tips.

    show version
    Hostname: EX1-Primary
    Model: ex2200-c-12t-2g
    Junos: 15.1R5.5
    JUNOS EX Software Suite [15.1R5.5]
    JUNOS FIPS mode utilities [15.1R5.5]
    JUNOS Online Documentation [15.1R5.5]
    JUNOS EX 2200 Software Suite [15.1R5.5]
    JUNOS Web Management Platform Package [15.1R5.5]
    show configuration interfaces
    ge-0/0/0 {
    description EX1-Feed;
    unit 0 {
    family ethernet-switching {
    port-mode trunk;
    vlan {
    members [ Data Voice ];
    vlan {
    unit 5 {
    description VOICE;
    family inet {
    address {
    vrrp-group 5 {
    priority 254;
    unit 10 {
    description DATA;
    family inet {
    address {
    vrrp-group 10 {
    priority 255;


    Other EX mirrors both vlans with the opposite addressing.

    Which junos version are you using? Is it a new configuration?

    Your config looks normal, but two notes:

    1. Juniper no longer recommends 15.1 on ex2200 due to insufficient memory. Any way you can roll back to 12.3?
    2. You've duplicated your virtual and real IP on vlan.10--maybe vrrp is failing to load?

    Thanks,  I wasn't aware of the memory issues. Rolling back to 12.3 seems to have resolved it.
