Usage Infomation
  • SAA can configure up to two addresses. If any preferred prefix or valid timers time out, the corresponding address are deprecated or removed. If an address is removed due to a time-out, an address from the current unused prefix is used to create a new address. If there are no remaining prefixes, the software waits to receive a new prefix from the RA.

  • If auto-configuration is enabled, all IPv6 addresses on that management interface are auto-configured. Manual and auto-configurations are not supported on a single management interface.

  • Removing auto-configuration removes all auto-configured IPv6 addresses and the link-local IPv6 address from that management interface.

  • IPv6 addresses on a single management interface cannot be members of the same subnet.

  • IPv6 secondary addresses on management interfaces across a platform must be members of the same subnet.

  • IPv6 secondary addresses on management interfaces should not match the virtual IP address and should not be in the same subnet as the virtual IP.
