P2000 g3 IPv6 host ports



I'm having issues with a P2000 g3. On both controllers, it's impossible to set a network mask.


In the webgui, nothing works, basically. The results vary, from everything set to default with a netmask of  0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:FFFF:FF00, to every block beeing empty with "parameter required" errors in red.


In the SMU, this works

set host-parameters ip fdad:0a1a:0057:0104:0000:0000:0000:00b4 ports b4 iscsi-ip-version ipv6

set host-parameters gateway fdad:0a1a:0057:0104:0000:0000:0000:0001 ports b4 iscsi-ip-version ipv6


But not this:

set host-parameters netmask ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:0000:0000:0000:0000 ports b4 iscsi-ip-version ipv6


Netmask cannot be set, on any port. Netmask will always set itself to 0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:FFFF:FF00: that isn't even a valid netmask. It's not even a valid host mask, it's just wrong. Restarting the MC or SC doesn't work.


Has anywone encountered this before? Any tips on how to force the configuration?
