Standardize VRRP group IDs
Closed, DeclinedPublic


We use multiple VRRP group IDs usually loosely (as it's a value from 0 to 255) matching the VLAN ID.

This is useful when there are different VRRP groups in the same vlan, which we don't do. Furthermore ulsfo uses a value of 1 for both v4 and v6 in all vlans.

I suggest we use 1 everywhere, and remove the Netbox custom field, to keep the config lean.

As changing it is impactful (split-brain), we should do it when the site is depooled. However there is no urgency.

[operations/software/homer/deploy@master] Remove "old" VRRP support

We're slowly moving away from VRRP. The benefits of renumbering them all is not worth the time, especially as we removed the custom field in favor or T311218: Netbox: use FHRP Groups feature.
