Use IPv6 link local addresses on server side of a load balancing setup

IPv6 link local address is supported for services, service groups, and servers of a load balancing configuration. You can specify a link local IPv6 address along with the associated VLAN ID in services, service groups, and servers configurations.The NetScaler appliance uses the link local SNIP6 address from the same VLAN as specified in the services, service groups, and servers configurations to communicate with them.

A link local IPv6 address and the associated VLAN ID are specified in the following format in services, service groups, and servers configurations: %

For example, fe80:123:4567::a%2048:, fe80:123:4567::a is the link local address AND 2048 is the VLAN ID.

> add service SERVICE-1 fe80:123:4567::a%2048 HTTP 80

Done
> bind servicegroup SERVICE-GROUP-1 fe80::1%24 80

Done
> add server SERVER-1 fe80:b:c:d::e:f:a/64%1028
