I have a set of new Brocade CER 2024F routers.
I like the management port, as I happen to have a /64 statically routes through another ISP that I will happily use as
management network. To seperate out things, I'd have liked to put the management interfaces into a seperate VRF, but apparently
this isn't possible with 5.0, my sales engineers says maybe with 5.1.
What I did instead was to put everything else into a VRF called core. Well, but it seems that I can not do this for IPv6.
Or at least I do not know how:
Total number of VRFs configured: 2
Status Codes - A:active, Dending deletion, I:inactive
Name Default RD IFL ID vrf|v4|v6 Interfaces
core 10:10 131070 A | A| I e1/13 lo3
management 192.168.1.147:1 131071 A | A| I
Is this a known limitation? If so, it means I really can't put any ports into an IPv4 VRF is I intend to run IPv6 on the port as well.

Please check BGP to see if you have got IPV6 running their.
NetIron# show ipv6 bgp peer-group peer1
1 BGP peer-group is pg1, Remote AS: 65002
Description: device group 1
Address family : IPV4 Unicast
Address family : IPV4 Multicast
Address family : IPV6 Unicast
I can see an example using IPV6 in a VRF when adding PIM routing
NetIron(config-pim-router)#ipv6 router pim vrf blue
So there must be a way to do this. (This info was found in the V5 config guide)

What does having BGP on for IPv6 have to do with anything?
I have IPv6 running, and yes, BGP too.
