Some quick thoughts:

  • It help get rid of duplicate IPs as a VIP is assigned to the group, which is then assigned to the interfaces.
  • Can store the VRRP priority
    • But this will require a Netbox script (or cookbook) to fail over VRRP when needed
    • We can still set it to 0 in Netbox (required field) and use the current template based failover
