enable isis area export ipv6

enable isis area area_name export ipv6 route-type [policy | metric mvalue] {level[1| 2 | both-1-and-2]}


This command enables IPv6 route redistribution into IS-IS for direct, static, RIPng, or OSPFv3 routes.

Syntax Description

area_name Specifies the IS-IS router process that receives the exported routes.
route-type Selects the type of route for export. The valid route types are: direct, ospfv3, ospfv3-extern1, ospfv3-extern2, ospfv3-inter, ospfv3-intra, ripng, bgp, and static.
policy Specifies a policy that controls how routes are redistributed into IS-IS.
mvalue Specifies a metric to assign to the routes exported to IS-IS. The range is 0 to 4261412864.
level [1 | 2 | both-1-and-2] Limits the use of redistributed routes to level 1, level 2, or both.


All types are disabled.

Usage Guidelines

If a policy is specified, the policy is used to determine what specific routes are redistributed into IS-IS. Otherwise, the specified metric and type are assigned to the redistributed routes. Redistributed routes are added to the IPv6 External Reachability TLV in LSPs. For policies, the nlri match attribute is supported, and the cost, cost-type internal, permit, and deny set attributes are supported.


The following command exports RIPng routes to IS-IS and assigns the internal metric type and metric value 5 to the redistributed routes:

enable isis area areax export ipv6 ripng metric 5 metric-type internal


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.1.

Support for BGP was added in ExtremeXOS 12.6.0-BGP.
