Can you implement a complete IPv6 deployment without IPv4 addresses?


Can you implement a complete IPv6 deployment without IPv4 addresses?

A.
No. SmartCenter cannot be accessed from everywhere on the Internet.

B.
Yes. Only one TCP stack (IPv6 or IPv4) can be used at the same time.

C.
Yes, There is no requirement for managing IPv4 addresses.

D.

  1. D says:

    IPV6 Only configurations are permitted.

  2. Vlad says:

    For Cluster configuration:
    Note – You must configure synchronization interfaces with an IPv4 address only. This is because the synchronization mechanism works using IPv4 only. All IPv6 information and states are synchronized using this interface.

    To create new cluster members for ClusterXL:
    Define an IP address for each interface on all members. Do not define IPv6 addresses for synchronization interfaces.

    To create a new cluster with the Appliance or Open Server Wizard:

    Important: You must define a corresponding IPv4 address for every IPv6 address. This release does not support pure IPv6 addresses.

    To configure a cluster member:
    Important: You must define a corresponding IPv4 address for every IPv6 address. This release does not support pure IPv6 addresses.
    ****The option D says:
    No. IPv4 addresses are required for management.****

    So, based just on the options to this question i would select “C”

  4. Esteban says:

    C. Yes, There is no requirement for managing IPv4 addresses.

  5. Chirag says:

    In general, C seems right. However, with regards to Clustering, D seems right. Not sure what is the context of the question here. Any expert guidance on this?

  6. Chirag Rao says:

    The ClusterXL guide for R77.10 clearly states that pure IPv6 is not possible. Moreover, the synchronization interfaces must be configured with IPv4 addresses. To me, D seems to be the right answer.
