Set public IP pool as default


My server has a public IPv6 and an additional IPv6. I would like to remove the public IPv6 from my server and turn the additional IP as primary (and unique ipv6 address on my server).

I have already configured the additional IP as static, but the public IP still persists and I can not disable it.

Here my IPv6 config in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0


** CentOS 7

All right, I solved it by adding the parameter "IPV6_AUTOCONF=no" in my configuration and it works now.

It worked for few minutes, but now the IPv6 isn't working.

Hello @dioobr,

When configuring IPv6 to be persistent on a Linode, you should turn the Network Helper off.

Once that is off, we recommend going through this Community Site post that goes over the steps in configuring IPv6.

If you'd like, feel free to learn more about networking configurations on our platform.

Hi Preston,

That's exactly what I did.

If I remember correctly, you need the statically-assigned IPv6 address in order to use the pool. That's probably what you're running into.
