Configuring IPv6 Static Routes with Tags for Redistribution of Routes

You can assign optional route tags for IPv6 static routes. IPv6 static routes are configured to set a destination to receive and send traffic to and from a network or to use a specific route through the network. You can use the optional tag keyword to specify a value for the route tag. The route tag is a 32-bit number in the range 0-4294967295. The default value is 0. The configured tag value is stored in NVS; hence it will be available after SRP reload, HA, and ISSU. You can verify the configured parameters by using the show commands. The route tag can be used for route redistribution to routing protocols by using route maps similar to IPv4 static route redistribution. You can do this by configuring a route map with the route tags in it. This route map is applied to the redistribution command. You can assign a tag value to the IPv6 static route using the ipv6 route command as follows:


  • You must configure an IPv6 license using the license ipv6 command before using the IPv6 routing protocol configuration commands on the E Series router.
  • All IPv6 routing protocol configurations are removed from the virtual router when you issue the no ipv6 command.
