appliance networking interfaces ipv6: address info

The address_info structure provides the structure that you can use to get information about an IPv6 address along with its origin and status. This structure was added in vSphere API 6.7.

Representation:

{
    "address""string",
    "prefix"1,
    "origin""DHCP",
    "status""TENTATIVE"
}

Attributes:

Name Type Description
Required
origin string The Origin of the IPv6 address. For more information, see RFC 4293. This attribute was added in vSphere API 6.7.

Defines IPv6 address origin values. This enumeration was added in vSphere API 6.7. Value is one of:
DHCP: The IPv6 address is assigned by a DHCP server. See RFC 4293. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
RANDOM: The IPv6 address is assigned randomly by the system. See RFC 4293. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
MANUAL: The IPv6 address was manually configured to a specified address, for example, by user configuration. See RFC 4293. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
LINKLAYER: The IPv6 address is assigned by IPv6 Stateless Address Auto-configuration (SLAAC). See RFC 4293. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
OTHER: The IPv6 address is assigned by a mechanism other than manual, DHCP, SLAAC, or random. See RFC 4293. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.

status string The Status of the IPv6 address. For more information, see RFC 4293. This attribute was added in vSphere API 6.7.

Defines IPv6 address status values. See RFC 4293. This enumeration was added in vSphere API 6.7. Value is one of:
TENTATIVE: The IPv6 address is in the process of being verified as unique. An address in this state cannot be used for general communication. It can be used to determine the uniqueness of the address. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
UNKNOWN: The status of this address cannot be determined. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
INACCESSIBLE: The IPv6 address is inaccessible because the interface to which this address is assigned is not operational. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
INVALID: The IPv6 address is not a valid address. It should not appear as the destination or source address of a packet. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
DUPLICATE: The IPv6 address is not unique on the link and cannot be used. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
PREFERRED: This is a valid IPv6 address that can appear as the destination or source address of a packet. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
DEPRECATED: The is a valid but deprecated IPv6 address. This address cannot be used as a source address in new communications, although packets addressed to such an address are processed as expected. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.
OPTIMISTIC: The IPv6 address is available for use, subject to restrictions, while its uniqueness on a link is being verified. This constant was added in vSphere API 6.7.

address string The IPv6 address, for example, fc00:10:20:83:20c:29ff:fe94:bb5a. This attribute was added in vSphere API 6.7.

prefix long The IPv6 CIDR prefix, for example, 64. This attribute was added in vSphere API 6.7.
