Support for IPv4 and IPv6 on a vRouter Interface

You can now add IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to a vRouter interface. If you enable or disable the interface, both IPv4 and IPv6 are affected. Routing protocols can be enabled or configured independently using the IP address.

When you add a vRouter interface, you can configure it with two IP addresses, IPv4 and IPv6:

CLI network-admin@Leaf1 > vrouter-interface-add vrouter-name name-string vlan vlan-id ip ip-address netmask netmask assigment none|dhcp ip2 ip-address netmask2 netmask assigment none|dhcp|dchpv6

 

You can display the IP addresses:

CLI network-admin@Leaf1 > vrouter-interface-show vrouter-name name-string vlan vlan-id ip ip-address netmask netmask assignment none|dhcp|dchpv6 ip2 ip-address netmask2 netmask assignment none|dhcp|dchpv6

 

To migrate the interface from a single stack to a dual stack, the following commands are used:

CLI network-admin@Leaf1 > vrouter-interface-ip-add

vrouter-name name-string

Specify the name of the vRouter.

nic nic-string

Specify the virtual NIC assigned to the interface.

ip ip-address

Specify the IP address assigned to the interface.

netmask netmask

Specify the netmask of the IP address.

Specify any of the following options

vnet vnet-name

Specify the VNET assigned to the vRouter.

l2-net l2-net name

Specify the Layer 2 interface.

 

CLI network-admin@Leaf1 > vrouter-interface-ip-remove

vrouter-name name-string

Specify the name of the vRouter.

nic nic-string

Specify the virtual NIC assigned to the interface.

ip ip-address

Specify the IP address assigned to the interface.

 

CLI network-admin@Leaf1 > vrouter-interface-ip-show

vrouter-name name-string

Specify the name of the vRouter.

nic nic-string

Specify the virtual NIC assigned to the interface.

ip ip-address

Specify the IP address assigned to the interface.

netmask netmask

Specify the netmask of the IP address.

Specify any of the following options

vnet vnet-name

Specify the VNET assigned to the vRouter.

l2-net l2-net name

Specify the Layer 2 interface.
