I've spent some time looking around for a complete list of prerequisites for IPv6 on Nexus 7000. Is there one complete reference available?
For example, I'm on v5.2(5) and see that it is supported. But is it stable/complete or would an upgrade be recommended? Are there any known bugs? Is there any licensing required?
Are the original N7K-SUP1 sups OK? How about the original N7K-M132XP-12 blades? What is the memory recommendation? vDC?
I've found this link (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/6_x/nx-os/unicast/configuration/guide/l3_ipv6.html#wp1200846) but it doesn't really state the fundamental requirements for v5.
And this link (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/customer/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/5_x/nx-os/unicast/configuration/guide/l3_ipv6.htm) states the routing protocols for IPv6 and mentions: "OSPF for IPv6". (ospfv3)
But this link for ospfv3 (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/5_x/nx-os/unicast/configuration/guide/l3_ospfv3.html#wpxref76351) doesn't state hardware/software requirements either.

Hi, it is my experience that IPv6 support on Nexus is not as feature rich as it is for say for a 6500.
It depends what features you are looking for. Try using the Feature Navigator at: http://tools.cisco.com/ITDIT/CFN/
See below Cisco's recommendations for the minimum version of NX-OS that you should run on your N7K
SUP1's are end of sale now
So is the N7K-M132XP-12 blade EoS
Don't forget to rate helpful posts.
5.2(9) is most stable code.
N7K-M132XP-12 is end of support but you do not need to through it you can get upgrade / exchange for
N7K-M132XP-12XL which has nothing but more TCAM space.
