This week I got some good questions from a customer about NSX, especially on NSX IPv6 support.
And I knew which features are not supported:
But I couldn’t immediately answer the question which components of NSX supported what connectivity like IPv4, IPv6 or dual stack. To make things worse the NSX 6.2 Documentation Center does not contain a lot of information about the IPv6 support… Luckily for me (and the customer) some insiders provided me the necessary information and I would like to share this with you.
Detailed NSX IPv6 Support
|Guest VM Addressing||IPv4, IPv6, DS||VXLAN encap packets are capable of carrying IPv6 payload. VMs can have only IPv6 static addresses. SLAAC (RA) and DHCPv6 (relay and server) are not supported|
|NSX Manager IP||IPv4, IPv6, DS|
