CVTIP6DEV       CONVERT IPv6 DEVICE                    TAATCPE

The  Convert IPv6  Device  command converts  the  IP version  6  device
information to  the IP6DEVP outfile  in a named  library.  TCP  must be
active.   Only TCP/IPv6  network interfaces are  supported.  One record
is written for each IP device.   The API QtocLstNetIfc is used.   For a
description  of the  field  values in  the  outfile, refer  to the  API
documentation for format NIFC0200.

The model file is TAATCPFP with a format name of IP6DEVR.

For IPv4 devices, see the CVTIPDEV command.

A typical command would be:

             CVTIP6DEV   OUTLIB(QTEMP)

The  IP6DEVP file would be created in  QTEMP and contain one record per
IP device.

Addresses in the outfile

Addresses are  in IPv6  format.   For details,  search the  Information
Center for the  "IPv6 concepts" topic.  Use the  "IPv6 address formats"

A '::'  value will appear in some address fields.   This means a string
of Hex  00s  exist.   A  value of  '::1'  means  a string  of  Hex  00s
followed by a 1 exists.

CVTIP6DEV escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

   OUTLIB        The  library  in  which  the   IP6DEVP  file  will  be

                 does  not already exist, a  library must be specified.

   OUTMBR        The member  of the IP6DEVP  file to be  used.  If  the
                 member does  not exist, it  is added.  The  default is

   REPLACE       A  *YES/*NO  value for  whether the  member  should be
