IPv6 Support on Cisco UCS 6248UP Device

Starting with 2.2.1b (El Capitan) IPv6 is supported (don't forget, Fabric Interconnect is a L2 switch, no L3 = routing)

IPv6 Management Support:

All 3 IP addresses  (2 physical and 1 cluster) are now able to have IPv6 addresses as are the new CIMC “in band” addresses. Services such as NTP, DNS are also reachable via IPv6.

Fabric Interconnect being a L2 switch it will foward the all the traffic to up-stream switch? which will / might contain IPv6 traffic as well ?

Thanks,

Hi Amit

Correct ! IPv6 support was introduced in 2.2.1b for the control plane (management,....), IPv6 support for OS installed on a blade is totally transparent to FI.
