While configuring an ipv6 static route, I see that if I specify the next hop ipv6 address then the traffic flows, however when I specify the outgoing interface instead of the next hop ipv6 address then the traffic doesn't flow thru, this is inspite the fact that in both cases traffic is supposed to flow out of the same interface. This is on latest CRS XR code.
Can you please explain why the interface option doesn't work? Do keep in mind that the destination network is located 2 hops away.
