Hi folks

I try to implement VRRP for IPv6.
Once configured, when I try to enable the instance it says
XOS : 15.3.2.11
Device : X450a
License :  Core


here my config (with fake IPs) :

#configure my-vlan ipaddress eui64 fe80::/64
#configure my-vlan ipaddress aaaa:bbbb:cccc:dddd:3002/64
#create vrrp vlan my-vlan vrid 30
#configure vrrp vlan my-vlan vrid 30 add virtual-link-local fe80::1

and here the problem :

#enable vrrp vlan my-vlan vrid 30
Error: Failed to enable VR for vlan my-vlan, vrid 30:
 VR must have at least 1 virtual IP address!


any idea what i'm doing wrong?
Unfortunately there are no examples in the concept guides.
fyi i also have a IPv4 vrrp on this vlan with another vrid. this one work lie a charm.

Alex,

I've never set it up with a virt. link-local address. In my setup, I use a 'real' v6 IP
configure vrrp vlan my-vlan vrid 30 add aaaa:bbbb:cccc:dddd::3456

Have you tried that yet, or would that break things?

That was it.

I followed the config guide where link-local was on the focus so didn't try that easy test.

ps : I agree link local is confusing if you're used to IPv4

Thanks Frank
