ipv6 commands from documentation are missing on FCX648

SSH@xxx(config)#ipv6 ?

  access-list    Build ipv6 access lists

  dns            Set DNS properties

  mld-snooping   Set MLD snooping globally

SSH@xxx(config)#ipv6

we are running 07.2.02g, "Config Guide" for that version of firmware says "ipv6 unicast-routing" should exist in "conf t" context.

however, that option is missing.

neither, I can add static ipv6 route.

Re: ipv6 commands from documentation are missing on FCX648

Hi

     Can you please post the output of a "show version" and "show flash", I think you may be running the switch code and not the layer 3 code.

E.g.

FCXS07202g.bin (Layer 2) - this will not have the commands you are looking for

FCXR07202g.bin (Layer 3) - this one will

Thanks

Michael.

Re: ipv6 commands from documentation are missing on FCX648

Ok, that looks correct to me. You are running Layer 3 code.

However I can not find a 7.2.02 config guide (firmware yes but no guide) - only 7.2.00 and 7.3.0.

The 7.2.00 guide states IPv6 is only for management and does not support the commands you want.

The 7.3.00 guide does state they are supported in Layer 3 code.

I would suggest you upgrade to either 7.3 for 7.4 code base.

Thanks

Michael.

Re: ipv6 commands from documentation are missing on FCX648

Hi

     It means, I cannot find a config guide for code release 7.2.02 at all so I have no way to see if these commands should work in that version.


However I can find a config guide for the next - 7.3.00 and that states the commands you are looking will work with the FCX units.  Like wise the release before 7.2.02 clearly states that uses commands are not support on FCX - only SX800/SX1600


This is why I suggest you upgrade to 7.3 or 7.4 (I would suggest 7.4)


Thanks

Michael.

Re: ipv6 commands from documentation are missing on FCX648

have a look at https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5g5Ig4-pDSuZ1B2cnNpb0YzUmc/edit?usp=sharing

page 247 "Configuring basic ipv6 connectivity..."

as far as I understand, that document states that 7.2.02a should support "ipv6 unicast-routing" command.

Re: ipv6 commands from documentation are missing on FCX648

Hi ,

     Thank you for the link - I did not have that one version of the guide.

Ok the section you are reading is not for a FCX - have a look at table 50 on page 239. it states that these comands are support on FESX,FSX,FSX 800 and FSX 1600 only and point you back to IPv6 management only chapter 7 for all others.

How ever like I said before these are support on your FCX starting with version 7.3 - So you will need to upgrade the firmware.

Thanks

Michael.

Re: ipv6 commands from documentation are missing on FCX648

thank you for clarification.

documentation is a bit messy (I couldn't figure out by myself that some ipv6 stuff is not appliable to FCX)

seems, we need to upgrade.
