Good Day, Umesh

 

1. Does set override enable command work if priority is configured on both HA device.
Yes, it works if the priority is set on both HA nodes.

2. In which case should we enable set override enable.
Set its device priority higher than other cluster units and enable override if you want to ensure that the same cluster unit always functions as the primary unit
and are less concerned about frequent cluster negotiation.

3. set override enable commands works just like HRSP & VRRP.
HA Override is not exactly the same as HSRP/VRRP, however the functionality is similar to VRRP active failover but they are distinct.
