Selecting Overview → Manage → Layer 3 → Manage vRouter Interfaces displays the Manage vRouter Interfaces dashboard with a list of any existing vRouter Interface settings.


Select the desired Fabric from the left side navigation bar and the dashboard updates showing all vRouter Interface entries from all switches within the Fabric.


Note: If no entries exist a "No Data Exists" message is displayed. You must first configure an entry on a switch. Prerequisite settings and configuration may be required.



The dashboard displays a list of existing vRouter Interface entries by Switch and selected vRouter. Additional parameters include: nic, IP, MAC, VLAN, nic-state, vrrp-id, vrrp-primary, vrrp-priority, vrrp-adv-int and vrrp-state.

The vRouter Interface information is scope dependent meaning either Fabric or Local.
