Fixed In Version: ovirt-provider-ovn-1.2.22
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
This feature adapts the existing IPv6 address support for OpenStack Networking API subnets, making its address mode configurable, as per the networking API subnet 'address_mode' parameter. The addresses can now be generated from RA messages, when the address mode parameter is set to 'dhcpv6_stateless'. This configuration also allows for the MTU of the logical network to be configured, which would be otherwise impossible for ipv6 logical networks.

Description Michael Burman 2019-03-06 13:15:28 UTC
Description of problem:
[RFE] Support IPv6 for address type in subnets in rhel8 guests

In rhel8 guests/VMs, we can't ping networks via the IPv6 subnets without RA.
In rhel7.6 VMs we could, see BZ 1434435 comment11.
We should support connectivity between IPv6 subnets in rhel8 guests. 

Since on el8, the default is for dhclient to assign ipv6 host addresses (/128 subnets)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create IPv6 network and subnet via REST API on the ovn provider
2. Import the network to RHV
3. Add this network to 2 rhel8 VMs
4. Run dhclient -6 on both VMs and get IPv6 addresses from the dhcpv6 subnet
5. Try to ping between the 2 VMs via the IPv6 addresses 

Actual results:
'Network is unreachable'.

Expected results:
Ping should work via the same IPv6 subnet

Additional info:
See also main RFE BZ 1434435 which was tested with success with rhel7.6 VMs and working as expected.
