Router query - migrating from ipv4 to ipv6.

HI

 

we are migrating from ipv4 to Ipv6.

 

 

I need to  know how to disable router discovery option in HP-UX .

 

and also need to know  Router discovery function is ON or OFF by default.

 

because I came to know the below,

 

In windows if Router Discovery function is enabled on server, unnecessary(or additional) IPv6 address will be assigned dynamically.

This impacts the IPv6 communication as there will be inconsistency in the combination of IP and FQDN registered on DNS

 

 

P.S. This thread has been moved from HP-UX > System Administration to HP-UX > networking  - HP Forums Moderator

Re: Router query - migrating from ipv4 to ipv6.

What version of HP-UX is this?

Re: Router query - migrating from ipv4 to ipv6.

The daemon that controls dynamic routing in HP-UX is the GATED daemon.  As long as this is NOT running, HP-UX should not automatically discover and add routes to your system.

 

To make sure this is turned off, do the following:

 

# cd /etc/rc.config.d

# grep GATED *

 

You should get something like:

 

# grep GATED *
netconf:GATED=0
netconf:GATED_ARGS=""

 

The GATED=0 indicates that the gated daemon will not start.
