Moving from 4.0 alpha to 4.0 beta since 4.0 alpha has been already released and bug is not ON_QA.
Comment 2 Edward Haas 2016-07-27 11:10:31 EDT
I could not recreate it on my setup.
Could you please try and recreate this and add the following data:
ip addr
ip -6 route
Comment 4 Edward Haas 2016-07-28 06:18:58 EDT
Based on the information we got, this is not a bug:

- We have confirmed that the address (fe80::21e:4aff:fe2b:ebff) is received by the host from the router (using RA).
- A local link address is accessible from the local lan, and it seems that the router on the network has advertised it (I guess it's a router configuration thing).

mburman, thank you for the help to investigate this.

I'm closing this as a non bug.
