Following are the error was shown.


  • Error: nat rule 'IPv6_VC NAT': NAT64 src xlat needs prefix len={96,64,56,48,40,32}
  • Error: Failed to parse nat policy


Thanks and Regards,

Hi @OsamaKhan ,


It seems, prefix length is missing under NAT policy which is causing commit failed. Please verify step 2 in the article which you referred for this configuration.
