Hi!

You can find conversation in HUB:
UDLD - you can use ELSM https://documentation.extremenetworks.com/exos_22.2/EXOS_21_1/Status_Monitoring/c_using-elsm.shtml

IPv6 RA - https://community.extremenetworks.com/extremeswitching-eos-230140/ipv6-ra-guard-support-for-eos-or-exos-7536550

https://documentation.extremenetworks.com/exos_22.2/EXOS_21_1/IPUnicastv6/c_ipv6-router-advertisement-filtering.shtml
All Summit, BD8K, and BDX8 platforms are supported. However, there are per-platform limitations on how many IPv6 extension headers can be parsed while still matching the supplied ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) type:
Up to 2 extension headers: X670-G2, X770
0 extension headers: Summit platforms

Thank you!

Hi!

In posted links:
ELSM (UDLD RFC5171 it's protocol from CIsco, but same functionality in ELSM protocol which supported by Exreme) - supported by all Summit switches (ExtremeSwitching EXOS) ( X440 G2 and X450 G2 Series)
ipv6 RA Guard - All Summit, BD8K, and BDX8 platforms are supported.
However, there are per-platform limitations on how many IPv6 extension headers can be parsed while still matching the supplied ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) type:
Up to 2 extension headers: X670-G2, X770
0 extension headers: Summit platforms

All information is present in provided links.

Summit it's past name of ExtremeSwitching EXOS 1U switches.

Thank you!
