FAQ
Hi.


I'm installing CentOS 7 with Kickstart on a machine that has IPv6. The
problem is that while it has an IPv6 address after installation it
does not have the IPv6 gateway. I'm using NetworkManager and my
network configuration is completely static, no autoconf or dhcpv6.


My Kickstart configuration uses the following network configuration
(actual values replaced but with the same format):


network --device enp1s0 --bootproto=static --gateway3.123.123.1
--ip3.123.123.123 --nameserver3.123.123.1
--netmask%5.255.255.0 --ipv6 01:123:abc::123
--ipv6gateway 01:123:abc::1 --activate
network --hostname=test.example.org


The Red Hat installation guide suggests that --ipv6gateway should be
used but it looks like it's not picked up. Does anyone know why this
doesn't work?

    Did you probably forget to provide the network prefix, when specifiying
    the ipv6 address?
    ....
    --ipv6 01:123:abc::123/network-prefix
    ....

    doesn't it default to /64 ?
