The Ipv6.Config structure provides the structure that you can use to configure IPv6 on a particular interface. Addresses can be assigned by DHCP, SLAAC or STATIC, as IPv6 permits multiple addresses per interface.


Required Property Name Type Description
required addresses array of NetworkingInterfacesIpv6Address

The list of addresses to be statically assigned.

required autoconf boolean

An address will be assigned by Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC).

required default_gateway string

The default gateway for static IP address assignment. This configures the global IPv6 default gateway on the appliance with the specified gateway address and interface. This gateway replaces the existing default gateway configured on the appliance. However, if the gateway address is link-local, then it is added for that interface. This does not support configuration of multiple global default gateways through different interfaces.

required dhcp boolean

An address will be assigned by a DHCP server.
