This mapped address must be removed or set to a valid IPv6 address when updating the management addresses via BMC.If you update the Management IP address through BMC and click Save, you must reinstall the SBC application software. If you update the management IP using CLI, EMS or EMA, it is automatically updated in the BMC and re-installation is not required.
