How to enable IPv6 on OVH with SolusVM > Though it’s been simple to install IP6 on any Server but when its comes to the Server from OVH standard steps to install and configure IP6 gets failed and ip does not response to ping6.
Sometimes Admins get confused with the custom rather complex structure and rules sets which must be followed by the admin for getting the IP6 online with SolusVM or other Virtual technologies. Know you must be thinking what are they and how to get ride of it.
Few simple things you need to keep in mind from start of the installation of Master server to end of configuring the networking on it. If you have missed single settings you going to get headetch for you.
1st You need to get some information on ip6
Now lets get prepaid for Getting IPv6 online, make sure the server must be running with a IPv6 kernel. This kernel is available by netboot Netboot.
Find your own IPv6 address in manager v3 Manager.
An IPv6 example
IPv6 will be the following:
Here are examples from which you can configure IPv6 on your dedicated server:
The following notations are the same:
But you can :: place only once.
Once you’ve switched the server to IPv6 kernel, after the reboot ifconfig already has IPv6 info:
adr inet6: fe80::2e0:4cff:fe99:88d0/64 Scope:Lien
This shows that IPv6 works on the network.
Now go to your network settings and make below changes (ip6 and other network settings will be according to your own)
[root@cadvz2 ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
[root@cadvz2 ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-xenbr0
[root@cadvz2 ~]#echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/forwarding
[root@cadvz2 ~]#cat /etc/sysctl.conf
Check below content should be on it
net.ipv6.conf.all.autoconf = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.autoconf = 1
net.ipv6.conf.eth0.autoconf = 1
net.ipv6.conf.all.accept_ra = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.accept_ra = 1
net.ipv6.conf.eth0.accept_ra = 1
[root@cadvz2 ~]# route -A inet6
above command should show you the routing available under inet6 routing table.
[root@cadvz2 ~]#/etc/init.d/network restart
Restart the services if everything goes well it should come up fine
Now you have to deal in the SolusVM Panel to make sure you add them correctly.
The router (default gateway) for each IPv6 is always on IP: v:6:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
The IPv6 server: 2001:41D0:1:46e::/64 to 2001:41D0:1:4 + 5x FF.
IPv6 Gateway: 2001:41D0:1:4FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
The IPv6 server: 2001:41d0:1:209::/64 to 2001:41d0:1:2 + 5x FF.
IPv6 Gateway: 2001:41d0:1:2FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
And that’s all you can now assign the IP6 from your SolusVM
