Enables OSPFv3 on an interface.
|vlan_name||Specifies an IPv6 configured VLAN.|
|tunnel_name||Specifies an IPv6 tunnel.|
|instanceId||Specifies the instance ID for this interfaces. Range is 0 to 255.|
|area_identifier||Specifies the area to which the VLAN is assigned.|
|auto||Specifies to automatically determine the OSPFv3 link type based on the interface type.|
|broadcast||Specifies a broadcast link, such as Ethernet. Routers must elect a DR and a BDR during synchronization.|
|point-to-point||Specifies a point-to-point link type, such as PPP.|
|passive||Specifies to stop sending and receiving hello packets on this interface.|
The default link-type is Auto.
The default instance ID is 0.
This command is used to enable the OSPFv3 protocol on an IPv6 configured VLAN or an IPv6 tunnel. The instance ID is used to control the selection of other routers as neighbors. The router will become a neighbor only with routers that have the same instance ID.
To change the instance ID associated with an interface, you must first remove the interface from the OSPFv3 area and then add it back with a different instance ID.
The passive parameter indicates that the router only synchronizes and listens, and does not originate or send any new information on the interface.
Enable IPv6 forwarding before enabling OSPFv3; otherwise, you will receive a warning message.
You cannot change the link-type value while OSPFv3 is enabled on the interface.
The following example adds the VLAN accounting (enabling OSPFv3 on the interface), to the area 0.0.0.1 with an instance ID of 2:
configure ospfv3 add vlan accounting instance-id 2 area 0.0.0.1 link-type auto
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.2.
The broadcast and point-to-point link-type keywords were supported in ExtremeXOS 15.7.1.
This command is available on platforms with Base license, or higher, as described in the Switch Engine 32.3 Feature License Requirements document.
