The traceroute6 command is used to check the route of packets when travelling from the source to the destination. When the network fails, the user can use this command to troubleshooting the fault point.

Command Syntax

  •   From the ">" prompt, use the following format,

traceroute6 <ipv6-address> [vrf <mgmt-vrf | vrf-name>]

  •   From the "#" prompt, add run in front of the command,

run traceroute6 <ipv6-address> [vrf <mgmt-vrf | vrf-name>]





Specifies the domain name or IPv6 address of the destination host.

vrf <mgmt-vrf | vrf-name>

Optional. Specifies a VRF name. The value is a string that could be mgmt-vrf or a user-defined VRF name.

  •   mgmt-vrf: management VRF is specified.
  •   vrf-name: a user-defined VRF set by using command set ip vrf <vrf-name> [description <string>].


  •   When a VRF name is specified, find the next hop routing information from the specified VRF domain.
  •   When no VRF is specified, find the next hop routing information from the default VRF.


  •   Traceroute the gateways for the host with the IP address fc00::3.
