    ipv6 address

    Syntax

    [ no ] ipv6 address ipv6Prefix [ eui-64 ]

    [ no ] ipv6 address [ ipv6Address maskLength [ eui-64 ] ]

    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.

    Description

    Assigns an IPv6 address (or network) to an interface and enables IPv6 processing on that interface. The no version deletes the association from the interface.

    Note: The link-local address for an interface is automatically configured when IPv6 is enabled on the interface.

    Options

    • ipv6Prefix—Prefix that defines the IPv6 interface or network in the format ipv6Address / length, where
      • ipv6Address—Base IPv6 address of the network route that you want to filter (for example, ::ffff:a:b:c:d)
      • length—Length of the network prefix; number of bits masking base address to produce address to be matched
    • ipv6Address—Base IPv6 address of the network route that you want to filter (for example, ::ffff:a:b:c:d); the ipv6Address must appear in hexadecimal format using 16-bit values between colons. Refer to RFC 2373—IP Version 6 Addressing Architecture (July 1998) for details.
    • maskLength—Length of the IPv6 mask. A decimal value that indicates how many of the high-order contiguous bits of the address comprise the prefix (the network portion of the address).
    • eui-64—Specifies the use of the eui-64 interface identifier
