Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1471402
Users don't need to assign an IPv6 address to any interface
Last modified: 2017-07-15 12:33:17 EDT
The guide says this about IPv6:
"Installing and running an IdM server requires IPv6 to be enabled on the network. Note that IPv6 is enabled by default on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 systems." -- section 2.1.2. System Requirements
A similar IPv6 requirement is also stated in B.1.3. Installing a Server Fails on a System with IPv6 Disabled.
To avoid any confusion, we should explicitly mention that only the IPv6 stack needs to be enabled. There is no need to assign an IPv6 address to any interface.
