Enabling or disabling RA processing

Enabling or disabling router-advertisement (RA) messages enables you to control the routing configuration for selecting the correct network interface to communicate with its neighbors.

Before you begin

IPv6 must be enabled on the cluster.

About this task

IPv6 RA processing is enabled by default when IPv6 is enabled on the cluster.
Note: In general, static route processing is preferred over RA processing. To disable RA processing, you must use the following command to set the RA processing to false.


Use the network options ipv6 modify command to enable or disable IPv6 RA processing on the cluster.
network options ipv6 modify -is-ra-processing-enabled {true|false}
