Cisco 4221 Router IPv6 Problem

Hi,

 

Our Cisco 4221 routers we use, won't join the "all routers multicast group" FF02::2 after enabling ipv6 unicast-routing and configuring the interface with ipv6. Sometimes we have to disable "ipv6 unicast-routing" and enabling it again to get it work. As we use them for CCNA training, it is really annoying to help out the students without an explanation. Any advice? Known Issue?

 

Cisco ISR4221/K9

Cisco IOS XE Software, Version 16.09.02

Hi Paul,

 

Sorry for the late response, but this doesn't help at all. I could reconstruct the problem with the Router-Advertisements. You can see that the router sends out RA's every 5 seconds and you can see that some of them doesn't include the "ICMPv6 Option (Source link-layer address: 10:b3:d6:04:d3:c0).

 

As soon as these Router Advertisement are received by the client, it can't resolve the IP-Address to their correspondent mac-address.

 

After a while a correct Router Advertisement with the including MAC address of the router interface is received, and pings are going through for 5seconds. (till another bad RA is received)!!!!

 

I've tested it on a cisco 1941 series router and could see that there are not that many RA's and all of them included the source link-layer address.
