Requirements for using IPv6

Contributors

Before you can use IPv6 on your SMB server, you need to know which versions of ONTAP and SMB support it and what the license requirements are.

ONTAP license requirements

No special license is required for IPv6 when SMB is licensed.

SMB protocol version requirements

  • For SVMs, ONTAP supports IPv6 on all versions of the SMB protocol.

Note

NetBIOS name service (NBNS) over IPv6 is not supported.
