Internetwork Expert Volume II: Lab 4 – Section 6

Section 7 – IPv6 – 7 Points

6.1 IPv6 Addressing

“Enable OSPFv3 area 0 on this link.”

This is the first lab in which I’ve had to configure any IPv6 routing protocols.

Implementing OSPF for IPv6

ipv6 ospf area

Problems right out of the gate:

r1(config-if)#ipv6 address 2001:192:10:1::/64
% 2001:192:10:1::/64 should not be configured on FastEthernet0/0, a subnet router anycast

Use the eui-64 option:

r1(config-if)#ipv6 address 2001:192:10:1::/64 eui-64
r1(config-if)#ipv6 ospf 100 area 0

r1#sh ipv6 os neigh

Neighbor ID     Pri   State           Dead Time   Interface ID    Interface      1   FULL/DR         00:00:36    1019            Fa0/0

r1#sh ipv6 route os
IPv6 Routing Table – 5 entries
Codes: C – Connected, L – Local, S – Static, R – RIP, B – BGP
       U – Per-user Static route
       I1 – ISIS L1, I2 – ISIS L2, IA – ISIS interarea, IS – ISIS summary
       O – OSPF intra, OI – OSPF inter, OE1 – OSPF ext 1, OE2 – OSPF ext 2
       ON1 – OSPF NSSA ext 1, ON2 – OSPF NSSA ext 2
OE2  2001:51:51:51::/64 [110/20]
     via FE80::216:47FF:FE14:E441, FastEthernet0/0

6.2 OSPFv3

These were pretty easy tasks…on the routers.  Just remember to build your ipv6 frame maps where necessary.

Switches are another story:

Configuring IPv6 Addressing and Enabling IPv6 Routing

sw2(config)#sdm prefer dual-ipv4-and-ipv6 ?
  default  Default bias
  routing  Unicast bias
  vlan     VLAN bias

•default—Set the switch to the default template to balance system resources.
•routing—Set the switch to the routing template to support IPv4 and IPv6 routing, including IPv4 policy-based routing.
•vlan—Maximize VLAN configuration on the switch with no routing supported in hardware.

sw2(config)#sdm prefer dual-ipv4-and-ipv6 default
Changes to the running SDM preferences have been stored, but cannot take effect until the next reload.
Use ‘show sdm prefer’ to see what SDM preference is currently active.

sw2#sh sdm prefer | i template
 The current template is “desktop default” template.
 On next reload, template will be “desktop IPv4 and IPv6 default” template.
Proceed with reload? [confirm]

After reload:
sw2#sh sdm prefer | i template
 The current template is “desktop IPv4 and IPv6 default” template.

sw2(config)#int vlan258
sw2(config-if)#ipv6 add ?
  X:X:X:X::X          IPv6 link-local address
  X:X:X:X::X/<0-128>  IPv6 prefix
  autoconfig          Obtain address using autoconfiguration

sw2(config-if)#ipv6 add 2001:141:1:25::8/64

Configuring OSPF for IPv6

Before you enable IPv6 OSPF on an interface, you must enable routing by using the ip routing global configuration command, enable the forwarding of IPv6 packets by using the ipv6 unicast-routing global configuration command, and enable IPv6 on Layer 3 interfaces on which you are enabling IPv6 OSPF.

I must not have sufficient code on my 3560 because I cannot configure ‘ipv6 unicast-routing’:

sw2(config)#ipv6 ?
  access-list  Configure access lists
  hop-limit    Configure hop count limit
  host         Configure static hostnames
  icmp         Configure ICMP parameters
  mld          Global MLD Snooping enable for Catalyst Vlans
  neighbor     Neighbor
  route        Configure static routes

sw2(config)#ipv6 unicast-routing
% Invalid input detected at ‘^’ marker.

sw2(config)#do sh ver | i IOS
Cisco IOS Software, C3560 Software (C3560-IPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.2(25)SEE2, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

I’m going to need to load new code on my switches.  😦
