The indicated interface received a Virtual Routing Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) packet for the specified VRRP group in which the indicated Virtual IP (VIP) address was missing.

The VRRPD_MISSING_VIP message is logged when a packet arrives for a VRRP group that has the wrong VIP or no VIP specified.

The error will look similar to the following:

Sometimes the error will be accompanied by packet loss; other times there will not seem to be any noticeable impact.

This error can be caused by the misconfiguration of VRRP, for example, configuring multiple VLANs to use one VRRP group.

It has also been seen as a result of crossed cables between routers.

Perform these steps to determine the cause and resolve the problem (if any):

1. Collect the show command output to help determine the cause of this message.

Capture the output to a file (in case you have to open a technical support case). To do this, configure each SSH client/terminal emulator to log your session.

2. Analyze the show command output. Look for any related events that occurred at or just before the VIP address missing message.

3. Double-check your configuration. Look for any different interfaces configured to use the same group ID. Also look for duplicate IP addresses. Try using a different group ID to resolve any issues with VRRP group IDs overlapping on the network.

4. It might also help to collect a TCP dump to get more information on the incoming packet that is causing the error. From the router CLI, issue the
