When IPv6 is enabled on a VLAN interface, you can manage the switch from
a network management station configured with an IPv6 address. Refer to
"SNMP Management for IPv6" on page 5-20.
Like the IPv4 loopback address, the IPv6 loopback address (::1) can be used
by the switch to send an IPv6 packet to itself. However, the IPv6 loopback
address is implicit on a VLAN and cannot be statically configured on any
VLAN. Refer to "Loopback Address" on page 3-24.
Includes new options for IPv6. Refer to "Debug/Syslog for IPv6" on page 8-12.
As of software release K.13.01, the switches covered by this guide support the
Dual stack operation (IPv4 and IPv6 addresses on the same VLAN).
Maximum of 512 VLANs with IPv4 and IPv6 addresses in any combination.
Up to 2048 VLANs configured on the switch.
Maximum of 2048 active IPv6 addresses on the switch, in addition to a
maximum of 2048 IPv4 addresses. ("Active IPv6 addresses" includes the
total of all preferred and non-preferred addresses configured statically,
through DHCPv6, and through stateless autoconfiguration. Excluded
from "Active IPv6 Addresses" is the link-local address assigned to each
VLAN, and "on- link" prefixes received as part of a router advertisement.)
Maximum of 32 IPv6 addresses on a VLAN.
Maximum of 10,000 IPv6 routes.

by this guide, refer to the appendix titled "Scalability: IP Address, VLAN, and
Routing Maximum Values" in the Management and Configuration Guide for
