Network Topology : Controller (IPv6) ======= Uplink Router (IPv6)


Configuration Steps : To enable IPv6 in the controller globally, run the below command.

Answer : Post enabling one should be able to ping IPv6 interfaces on the Controller.


Verification: (config) #show ipv6 global

#show ipv6 global
Global IPv6 Packet Processing is Enabled

#ping ipv6 2001::2
Press 'q' to abort.
Sending 5, 92-byte ICMPv6 Echos to 2001::2, timeout is 2 seconds:
