Cisco IPV6 config

Tom Moore

on
I have new c9300 switches (pair), When I program an interface, the interface auto adds:

 ipv6 address dhcp
 ipv6 address autoconfig
 ipv6 enable
 ipv6 dhcp client request vendor
I have tried the 'no' cmd to all these entries - no luck
I have also tried the global no ipv6 unicast-routing
Am I missing something?

I am looking to turn off ipv6 completely. It is not needed for our network

I see these lines added compared to another stack:
 ipv6 mld query-max-response-time 10
 ipv6 mld query-timeout 255
 ipv6 mld query-interval 125
 ipv6 mld router
 ipv6 address dhcp rapid-commit
 ipv6 address autoconfig
 ipv6 enable

Look at for the first instance of these two:

ipv6 address autoconfig
 ipv6 enable

Are they occurring at global?
Tom MooreNetwork Administrator

Author

Commented:
I believe so
atlas_shudderedSr. Network Engineer

Commented:
If those are globally set, then run the "no" of each.
Tom MooreNetwork Administrator

Commented:
Wait I think it is under:
ipv6 cef load-sharing algorithm universal BCFF9DC6
atlas_shudderedSr. Network Engineer

Commented:
try the

no ipv6 enable

under that line then.
Tom MooreNetwork Administrator

Author

Commented:
I tried that, no luck. If you type no ipv6 ? there are none of those options
atlas_shudderedSr. Network Engineer

Commented:
What's got me buggered up is that it was turned on default.

Have you tried no ipv6 enable under the interfaces?

**EDIT** Sorry didn't see Atlas already mention that.

Commented:
Spears I tried that. It takes the command but instantly returns upon another sh ru

Commented:
It most likely have to do with the sdm template you are running.
atlas_shudderedSr. Network Engineer

Commented:
One other thing

Go to the host connected to one of those ports and turn v6 off.  See if that clears the interface config.  May need to run the no ipv6 enable on the interface after.

Can you post the sh sdm prefer?  You are probably running the dual stack ipv4 v6 template

Try doing a no sdm prefer, then reload the switch if you can at this time.

Tried no sdm prefer - incomplete command as well - FYI

no sdm prefer access wasn't an option?

Commented:
Huge oversight..... I had to shut the interface to remove the ipv6 config. Once this was complete on both interfaces, the other interfaces you configure are not auto adding ipv6 info.
