Adding a Description to an IPv6 Interface or Subinterface

The router enables you to add a text description or an alias to an IPv6 interface or subinterface. Adding a description helps you identify the interface and keep track of interface connections. The description or alias can be a maximum of 256 characters.

Note:

  • Before you configure IPv6, you must create the lower-layer interfaces over which IPv6 traffic flows.
  • 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.
  • You can use this command in Subinterface Configuration mode.
