ipv6 address family with vrf

Has anyone been able to configure ipv4 and ipv6 AFI with VRF instances
simultaneously? Using
the 7200 and 12.4(25e), under the ipv6 address family the VRF sub commands
are not visible,
must be a feature?

thanx in advance,


hmmm, looks like I am looking for the multiprotocol vrf feature that is only
supported in the
modular IOS trains for the CRS and ASR platforms, can anyone confirm that?


I have a 7200 running in my lab with 12.4(24e) and I don't see the v6 VRF stuff in there either. Did you check the software advisor on CCO?

I had to upgrade my 6509s to 12.2(33)SXI6 to get that functionality. I was glad to avoid SXJ at least for now. I like to let new code releases for the 6500s cook for awhile before trying them out :wink:


Cisco IOS 12.4(24)T2(C7200-ADVENTERPRISEK9-M), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2) supports vpnv6 and ipv6 vrf address families.


Support came in a later 12.4T train release, although you're probably best
going to 15.0M at this point. You need advanced IP services,Advanced
enterprise services or SP services. Consult cisco.com/go/fn. Both VRF and
VRF-lite IPV6 support are under the same feature, but I forget what it's
called in FN (IPV6 VPN, 6PE, or something similar). IP base and Advanced
security are confirmed to not work.

I went through this about a month ago. I wish Cisco would include feature
parity for features between ipv4 and ipv6 like they recently announced on
Catalyst products. This would help encourage ipv6 adoption in cases where
it's otherwise discretionary. The lack of this particular missing feature
(IPV6 VRF-lite support) affected IPV6 deployment for us in general on
internet routers due to the financial costs of licensing advanced IP
