Adding IPv6 Link-Local Addresses for Static Routing
IPv6 link-local addresses have a specific prefix fe80::/10 and are relevant only on the local link. This makes it possible to have the same link-local address on multiple IPv6 interfaces. If you add a static route reachable through a link-local address, you must specify the outgoing interface.
A new parameter now allows you to specify the interface for the static route:
CLI network-admin@Leaf1 > vrouter-static-route-add
 
vrouter-name name-string
Specify the name of the vRouter service.
network ip-address
Specify the IP subnet of the network that you want to add a static router.
netmask netmask
Specify the netmask of the IP subnet.
gateway-ip ip-address
Specify the IP address of the gateway that you want to route packets destined for the network IP address.
bfd-dst-ip ip-address
Specify the destination IP address for BFD monitoring.
distance number
Specifies the administrative distance in a number from 0 to 255.
0 ­ — Connected interface
1 — Static route
110 — OSPF
120 — RIP
200 — Internal BGP
interface vrouter interface nic
Specify the vRouter interface for the static route.
You remove or display the state using the commands, vrouter-static-route-remove, and vrouter-static-route-show.
