Bug #14785

Updated by Marcos M 7 months ago

If a compressed IPv6 VIP exists, the interface's primary IPv6 address will be set to the VIP even when a non-VIP GUA exists. Example (partially redacted): 
 <pre> 
 vmx1.98: flags=1008843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST,LOWER_UP> metric 0 mtu 1500 
     description: ISP2 
     options=4000000<MEXTPG> 
     ether 00:50:56:b2:b1:89 
     inet 192.168.1.253 netmask 0xfffffffc broadcast 192.168.1.255 
     inet6 fe80::250:56ff:feb2:b189%vmx1.98 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0xf 
     inet6 VIP:VIP:VIP:VIP:5:5:0:1 prefixlen 128 
     inet6 ULA:ULA:ULA:ULA:250:56ff:feb2:b189 prefixlen 64 autoconf pltime 3600 vltime 86400 
     inet6 GUA:GUA:GUA:GUA:250:56ff:feb2:b189 prefixlen 64 autoconf pltime 2592000 vltime 2592000 
     groups: vlan 
     vlan: 98 vlanproto: 802.1q vlanpcp: 0 parent interface: vmx1 
     media: Ethernet autoselect 
     status: active 
     nd6 options=23<PERFORMNUD,ACCEPT_RTADV,AUTO_LINKLOCAL> 
 </pre> 
 Here, the primary address should be @GUA:GUA:GUA:GUA:250:56ff:feb2:b189@, but instead Status > Interfaces shows it's @VIP:VIP:VIP:VIP:5:5:0:1@.
