I have 2 virtual context on my ASA sharing an interface to communicate with each other.
Context named Test and VPN

Problem is I cannot ping from TEST to VPN context via ipv6.
I don’t have any problems with ping the interface with ipv4.
Please see attached my configs.

I tried this setup on 2 different ASA’s one ASA with code 9 and one with code 9.2.
Only problem is connectivity via ipv6.
What did i do wrong with ipv6 configs.

Can you post the relevant sections of the config?  Is the ASA configured with any IP's and rules for allowing ICMP traffic?

Does your policy allow the IPV6 traffic flows to the ASA?

The IPv6 neighbor mechanism relies on multicasting and multicasting (ipv4 & ipv6) is not supported on shared interfaces.
Two ways to work around it:
- Define static neighbors. Works fine if you only have 2-3 contexts. Too much work if you need more contexts. You need to setup a full mesh of routes and static neighbors.
- Have some other device in the shared network do routing (router on a stick) for IPv6.
