In IPv6, ARP request frame is replaced with Multicast Neighbor Solicitation Messages.

When a network carry IPv6 only node, ARP request (supported in IPv4) would not be send as it is replaced with multicast neighbor Solicitation messages. Due to which the "Unmanaged Detector" may not work.

Secondly, SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1 is not supporting the Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP) as well.

Could we have the Upcoming versions of SEP 12.1 have the support for the same?

This is a good idea.  We will investigate it for a future release.
