    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 8.4.

    Statement introduced in Junos OS 11.3 for the QFX Series.

    Description

    Configure a virtual link-local address for a Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) IPv6 group. You must explicitly define a virtual link-local address for each VRRP for IPv6 group. The virtual link-local address must be in the same subnet as the physical interface address.

    Note: You do not need to configure link-local addresses and virtual link-local addresses when configuring VRRP for IPv6. Junos OS automatically generates link-local addresses and virtual link-local addresses. However, if link local addresses and virtual link-local addresses are configured, Junos OS considers the configured addresses.

    Options

    ipv6-address—virtual link-local IPv6 address for VRRP for an IPv6 group.

    Range: 0 through 255

    Required Privilege Level
