ipv6.arpa and OES

The DNSDHCP tool or iManager seems not to support creating this.

Does anyone have any info on ipv6 support. Even yast has not got proper support for it. It seems (to me so far) that the only way to add an ipv6 number is to add an "additional address". even then i had to edit /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0 and add a /64 to the back of the ip number as the mask entry seemed not to have an effect (the "ip a" command showed the mask as /128.

We are mandated to implement ipv6 by the end of 2011 (govt department) so i'm trying to investigate my part of the network and ensure that i know what to do and what works.

I'm going to setup dhcp soon, dns AAAA records appear to work. Still haven't investigated DNAME or A6 records yet.

Guess i'm just trying to ascertain what others may have discovered for themselves or learn about tools/patches/etc that i've yet to stumble on yet.

Peter,

Some weeks ago I spent an afternoon looking at what IPv6 services I
could make use of on our OES2 test servers, since we have both IPv4 and
v6 networking here.

Our DNS is all handled by other systems and the OES2 boxes were all
using their default "auto" IPv6 addresses. As far as I can tell, only
ssh and Apache make any use of IPv6 on an OES2 box, so it wasn't of any
real use to us.
