Hi

This question is very OS specific. Please refer to a Fedora Working Group or Blog.

Cheers, Silvia

Hi,

If all you are looking to do is assign an IPV6 address to an interface, use the command:

[root@serverA ~]# ip -6 addr add {ADDRESS} dev {DEVICE}

to delete the address substitute ‘del’ in place iof the ‘add’ parameter.

RFC 4862 offers details about auto-configuration in IPV6.

Hope this helps.
