traceroute ipv6 source address can not be specified

Hello,

it doesn't seem to be possible to set the source address for a traceroute for IPv6, is it? For IPv4 it is possible:

 

[switch-01]tracert ?
  -a             Select source IP address
  -f             First time to live
  -m             Maximum time to live
  -p             UDP port number
  -q             Number of probe packets
  -tos           Specify TOS value
  -vpn-instance  Specify VPN-Instance of MPLS VPN
  -w             Timeout in milliseconds to wait for each reply
  STRING<1-255>  IP address or hostname of a remote system
  ipv6           IPv6 Protocol
  lsp            LSP traceroute
[switch-01]tracert ipv6 ?
  -f             First Hop Limit
  -m             Maximum Hop Limit
  -p             Destination UDP port number
  -q             Number of probe packets
  -tos           Specify Traffic Class value
  -vpn-instance  Specify a VPN instance
  -w             Timeout in milliseconds to wait for each reply
  STRING<1-255>  Hostname/ IPv6 address 

Cheers,

     Thomas

Re: traceroute ipv6 source address can not be specified

Same goes for A5820X-24XG-SFP+ running latest 1808P16, no option to select source interface.

 

However doing "tracert ipv6?" I do have the ability to select "vpn-interface" (aka vrf) BUT there is no way to configure "vpn-interface" on this device (at least not according to "system-view" unless im missing something).

 

So I guess you need to get in contact with HP Support to file this as a feature request.
