Commands to authorize manager access

The following IPv6 commands authorize manager-level access for one link-local station at a time. When you enter a link-local IPv6 address with the ipv6 authorized-managers command, you must also enter a VLAN ID in the format: %vlanvlan-id.

Switch(config)# ipv6 authorized-managers fe80::07be:44ff:fec5:c965%vlan2
Switch(config)# ipv6 authorized-managers fe80::070a:294ff:fea4:733d%vlan2
Switch(config)# ipv6 authorized-managers fe80::19af:2cff:fe34:b04a%vlan5

The following ipv6 authorized-managers command authorizes a single, automatically generated (EUI-64) IPv6 address with manager-level access privilege:

Switch(config)# ipv6 authorized-managers ::223:04ff:fe03:4501 ::ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff

Default IPv6 mask

If you do not enter an ipv6-mask value when you configure an authorized IPv6 address, the switch automatically uses FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF:FFFF as the default IPv6 mask. Also, if you do not specify an access value to grant either manager- or operator-level access, by default, the switch assigns manager access.

Switch# ipv6 authorized-managers 2001:db8::a8:1c:e3:69
Switch# show ipv6 authorized-managers
