Configuring the Authentication Data Field

The null-auth-compatiblity command is used to allow inter-operation with other switches that expect authentication data fields in VRRPv3 packets for IPv6. It is configured in the VR context. This command allows compatibility with some Comware switches.


[no] null-auth-compatibility

When this command is enabled, authentication data is appended at the end of an IPv6 VRRP packet that is being sent. The authentication data consists of 8 bytes of zeros.
