IPv6 addressing configuration

This chapter provides the following:
  • General steps for IPv6 configuration.

  • IPv6 command syntax descriptions, including show commands.

Most IPv6 configuration commands are applied per-VLAN. The exceptions are ICMP, ND, and the (optional) authorized-managers features, which are configured at the global configuration level. (ICMP and ND for IPv6 are enabled with default values when IPv6 is first enabled and can either be left in their default settings or reconfigured, as needed.)

Beginning with software release K.13.01, the switch can operate in dual-stack mode, where IPv4 and IPv6 run concurrently on a given VLAN.
