    Hello Experts,

    Is "router-advertisement" knob is mandatory for Neighbor Discovery ?

    router-advertisement

    So without this conf, router will respond only to Neighbor Discovery messages NOT to initiate ND messages , Right?

    Thanks

    Hi Sky Net,

     

    Neighbor Discovery on a point to point link between to Juniper devices works with simple IPv6 address configuration as well.  We need to configure router-advertisement for host IPv6 address assignment like i.e SLAAC which is similar to DHCP in IPv4.

    Hope this helps.
