Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 711879
IPv6 not working as advertised
Last modified: 2011-06-08 17:06:33 EDT
Description of problem:
I have marked this urgent as this should be working and today is world IPv6 day.
My network is defined as follows:
<bridge name='virbr0' stp='off' delay='0' />
<ip address='10.0.1.1' netmask='255.255.255.0'>
<ip family='ipv6' address='fd00:xxxx:xxxx:1::1' prefix='64'>
<ip family='ipv6' address='2001:xxxx:xxxx:0::1' prefix='64'>
That didn't automatically add any of the ipv6 addresses. As I said, no
radvd. If I read the bug reports correctly, it is supposed to be automagic.
Looking at the systclts mentioned here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=501934, the sysctls are set exactly as said they would be in that bug.
I see others on the mailing lists saying their configurations work, but they are all bridges to physical devices. So, the problem may be specifically to virtual bridge setups.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Sorry, on this reboot it started working.
