Usage Information
  • If two addresses are configured, delete an existing address before configuring a new address.

  • If the last manually-configured global IPv6 address is removed using the “no” form of the command, the link-local IPv6 address is removed automatically.

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

  • IPv6 secondary addresses on management interfaces across 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.

NOTE: Do not use the /128 prefix length on physical or port channel interfaces. You can use the /128 prefix length on loopback interfaces.
