This section explains how to configure IPv6 in Qumulo Core by configuring the default gateway and maximum transmission unit (MTU).

To Configure IPv6 by Using the qq CLI

  1. To specify the default gateway for IPv4 and IPv6 traffic, run the qq network_mod_interface command. For example:

    qq network_mod_interface --default-gateway \
      --default-gateway-ipv6 2001:db8:60e0:7352:e9d2:e180:e7e8:cdb8 \
      --mtu 1500
  2. To specify IPv6 addresses for your Qumulo cluster, run the qq network_mod_network command to modify the default network configuration. For example:

    qq network_mod_network --network-id 1 \
      --assigned-by STATIC \
      --netmask 2001:db8::/64 \
      --ip-ranges 2001:db8:0:0:1::1-2001:db8:0:0:1::ffff \
      --floating-ip-range 2001:db8:0:0:2::1-2001:db8:0:0:2::ffff \
      --dns-servers 2001:db8:8560:26eb:19f2:fe28:c49f:7f4c \
        2001:db8:2ebf:276a:375:a593:5c3a:d4c4 \
  3. To verify the configuration and confirm the assigned IPv6 addresses, uses the qq network_poll command.

  4. (Optional) to check that the assigned IPv6 addresses are accessible, run the ping command with the IPv6 address of a node in your cluster.
