Guys, I have a question regarding stateless autoconfig. I want to disable it on a LAN interface for testing purposes. I have used the 'ipv6 nd suppress-ra' command to, what I thought, would prevent autoconfigurations, but as I look at the output of 'sh ipv6 int' command:

Vlan301 is up, line protocol is up

IPv6 is enabled, link-local address is FE80::20A:42FF:FEA1:A00 [TEN]

Global unicast address(es):

2706:F368:8009:6::1, subnet is 2706:F368:8009:6::/64 [TEN]

Joined group address(es):





MTU is 1500 bytes

ICMP error messages limited to one every 50 milliseconds

ICMP redirects are enabled

ND DAD is enabled, number of DAD attempts: 1

ND reachable time is 30000 milliseconds

Hosts use stateless autoconfig for addresses.

you can see from the very last line of output that stateless configuration is alive and well. Does anyone know how I can truly disable it? Thanks.

Note, I want to disable stateless autoconfiguration for the hosts, just to be clear.
