Use the pool ipv4 command to enter IPv4 pool configuration submode and pool ipv6 command to enter IPv6 pool configuration submode.
The prefix-length command must be configured whenever the network command is used. The prefix-length must be configured to 128 to signify singleton addresses and a smaller value to signify IPv6 prefixes. The number of addresses or prefixes that can be allocated by DAPS can become huge when this command is used. The prefix-length command should be configured to a number that limits the number of addresses or prefixes for each pool to 64K.
The prefix is written as the first address of a network, followed by a
slash character (/) , and ends with the bit-length of the
prefix. For example, 192.168.1.0/24 is the prefix of the
IPv4 network starting at the given address, having 24 bits allocated for
the network prefix, and the remaining 8 bits reserved for host
addressing. The IPv6 address
specification 2001:db8::/32 is a large network with
addresses, having a 32-bit routing prefix. In IPv4
the routing prefix is also specified in the form of the
mask, which is expressed in quad-dotted decimal
representation like an address. For example,
255.255.255.0 is the network mask for the
This is an example of configuring the network command for IPv4:
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router(config)# pool vrf vrf1 ipv4 pool2
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router(config-pool-ipv4)# network 188.8.131.52/24
This is an example of configuring the network command for IPv6:
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router(config)# pool vrf vrf1 ipv6 pool3
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router(config-pool-ipv6)# network 10:1:1::/50
