How can I enable IPv6 addresses and routing on this network module?

Correct Answer by Harold Ritter about 8 years 7 months ago

Richard,


You need to select the dual ipv4/ipv6 SDM template for the ipv6 commands to be available on the module as mentioned in the following configuration guide.

Hello Richard,

you need to create a layer2 vlan


vlan 5

name for-ipv6


to associate ports on module with it


ipv6 routing


and to create an SVI


interface Vlan 5

! here you place L3 commands

! including IPv6 commands


Hope to help

Richard,


As Giuseppe indicated, the module just provide the port density to your device. The IPv6 service is provided by whatever IOS feature code you are running in the router.


To identify what IOS feature supports IPv6 for your hardware, please refer to the Cisco Feature Navigator at: http://www.cisco.com/web/go/fn

I have IPv6 running on my router fine but I'm trying to transition to the NME-16ES-1G for lan connectivity


and as its an ES not ESW it runs an IOS of its own independent of the router's IOS

(they of course have to be compatable)


router 3745 w/ IOS c3745-adventerprisek9-mz.124-15.T7

NME-16ES-1G w/ IOS c3750-advipservic

esk9-mz.122-46.SE


since as the cisco doc regarding the NME-16ES-1G says it uses the same line of IOS as the 3750 Switches


if I had a NM-16ESW-1G instead then Giuseppe would be right and it would add ports to the router itself but as its NME-16ES-1G this is not the case

Richard,


I apologize. I made the assumption you were running one of those etherswitch modules without checking the documentation on the aforementioned module.


As Harold indicated, you will run the services as a regular 3750 switch and to have IPv6 features you need to modify the SDM template.
