HP 1920 Switch Series - NOT Usable for IPv6 SLAAC

The HP 1920 is Similar to the Cisco SG300 Switch Series. Unfortunately the HP 1920 dont have a usable IPv6 Implementation because it doesn't send Router Advertisements from any VLan Interface. Without this Feature it couldn't be used for Client Switching because its not possible to configure the IPv6 Addresses automatically(SLAAC).


If i configure a Router Device in the Same VLan all the Routable Traffic from the Clients will be Routed over the Router and not over the Layer 3 Routing Function of the Switch.


Will this be implemented by a newer Version?

Seems like RA is default disabled, use commands below to enable RA per VLAN.
