Viewing and clearing the IPv6 Neighbor Cache

Neighbor discovery occurs when there is communication between the switch and another, reachable IPv6 device on the same VLAN. A neighbor destination is reachable from a given source address if a confirmation (neighbor solicitation) has been received at the source verifying that traffic has been received at the destination.

The switch maintains an IPv6 neighbor cache that is populated as a result of communication with other devices on the same VLAN.
