I have setup a lab environment with two vEOS 4.17.0F-3277845 switches. With this i’m testing RFC 5549 support. Simple setup with a dual-stack loopback interface on both switches and an ipv6 back-2-back connection over Et1. BGP peering session over ipv6 with address families ipv4 and ipv6 active. I get ipv4 routes with ipv6 nexthops in the routing table. So far so good.
But when i try to ping from loopback to loopback i get the message “ping: sendmsg: Network is unreachable“.
Is there anything i’m missing here? I have followed the instructions at https://eos.arista.com/eos-4-17-0f/rfc-5549-ipv4-unicast-with-ipv6-next-hop-support/ and https://eos.arista.com/eos-4-17-0f/ip-addressless-forwarding-changes-for-bgp-v6-nexthop-for-v4-routes/ .
