OSPFv3 address-family

This is possible to run the two address-families under the same OSPF process since Cisco IOS Software Release 15.1(3)S.

You can do this as :
R9(config)# ipv6 unicast-routing
R9(config)# ipv6 cef

Then :

R9(config)# router ospfv3 1
R9(config-router)#address-family ipv4 unicast
R9(config-router-af)#redistribute connected

And then configure the OSPF link by means of configuration on the interface :
R9(config-router-af)#int ser 3/0
R9(config-if)#ospfv3 1 ipv4 area 236
*May 13 20:31:14.956: %OSPFv3-5-ADJCHG: Process 1, IPv4, Nbr on Serial3/0 from LOADING to FULL, Loading Done
R9(config-if)#ospfv3 1 ipv6 area 236

This is where I think it is really powerful.
I recommend you to check IPv6 and OSPF only with the keyword “ospfv3” such as :

R9#show ospfv3 neighbor

          OSPFv3 1 address-family ipv4 (router-id

Neighbor ID     Pri   State           Dead Time   Interface ID    Interface          0   FULL/  -        00:00:33    15              Serial3/0

          OSPFv3 1 address-family ipv6 (router-id

Neighbor ID     Pri   State           Dead Time   Interface ID    Interface          0   FULL/  -        00:00:31    15              Serial3/0

On R6 we can see now :

6#show ip route ospf?
Hostname or A.B.C.D  ospf  ospfv3

R6#show ip route ospfv3
