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.
