Configuring IPv6 address groups

You configure address group objects when you have more than one address object you want to specify in rules that match source or destination addresses. For example, if you subscribe customer 1 and customer 2 to a group of links, then you can create rules that match the customer 1 OR customer 2 address space and load balance the set of gateways assigned to them.

The following policies use address groups:

  • Link load balancing policies
Basic Steps
  1. Create address objects.
  2. Configure address group objects. You can add up to 256 members in a group.
  3. Select the address groups when you configure your policies.

Before you begin:

  • You must have Read-Write permission for System settings.
To configure an address group:
  1. Click Shared Resources > Address.
  2. Click the IPv6 Address Group tab.
  3. Click Add to display the configuration editor.
  4. Complete the configuration as described in Address Group configuration.
  5. Click Save.
