Package : IPv6

IPv6 pools are used to define range of IPv6 addresses that is used for DHCPv6 server and Point-to-Point servers

IPv6 pools simply group IPv6 addresses for further usage. It is a single configuration point for all features that assign IPv6 addresses to clients.

Pool Configuration

Property Description
name (string; Default: ) Descriptive name of the pool.
prefix (IPv6/0..128; Default: ) Ipv6 address prefix

Read-only properties

Property Description
dynamic (yes | no) Whether pool is dynamic.

name: test
prefix: 2001::/60
prefix-length: 62
[admin@test-host] /ipv6 pool> print 
 # NAME                  PREFIX                                     PREFIX-LENGTH
