Nexus 5548 - ipv6 interface

Is it possible at nexus 5548 with daughter card to assign ipv6 address to interface?

I have gone thru lot's od docs cisco says on tech doc:

• IPv6 Routing Protocols: Static, Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OPFv3), Border Gateway Protocol (BGPv6), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRPv6)

• IPv6 VRF Lite

So I am assuming is supporting IPv6 routing.

command line:

NEXUS-1(config-if)# ipv6 add?

                         ^

% Invalid command at '^' marker.

?

                         ^

% Invalid command at '^' marker.

NEXUS-1(config-if)# ipv6 ?

  port  Port policy

I was looking for feature to turn on but doesn't looks there is one.

Doesn't seem that I can turn it on by ipv6 unicast-routing.

It might be something to do with your version of NX-OS.

My NX-OS is 5.1(3)N2(1) is that one supporting ipv6?

Is quite weird that nexus doesn’t support ipv6 where there is no many ipv4 left.

CISCO should really sort that out, we have spent over £50k for switches and we are not able to do dual stack ;(

Does it mean that we have to buy new NX OS update for brand new switches?

We have received those switches with this software yesterday.

Or do I need to buy ASR to do IPv6 routing?

thanks
