Description Jan Krocil 2017-07-20 11:40:20 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a fresh appliance with no IPv4 networking; IPv6 only
2. Start the appliance up
3. # ip a

Actual results:
The appliance has no IPv6 ULA assigned (it only has a link local address). 

Expected results:
The appliance has IPv6 ULA successfully assigned from the DHCP server.

Additional info:

1. systemctl stop firewalld
   ip6tables -F
2. systemctl restart network

At this point, the IPv6 address is correctly assigned to the iface.
Comment 2 Jan Krocil 2017-07-20 12:02:39 EDT
Better workaround:
We need to open port 546/udp in the active zone.

# firewall-cmd --zone=manageiq --add-port=546/udp --permanent
# firewall-cmd --reload
# systemctl restart network

    Allow the DHCPv6 client through the appliance firewall
    Before this change appliances would not correctly receive IPv6
    addresses via DHCP.
