IPv6 Planning (Task Maps)

Complete the tasks in the next task map in sequential order to accomplish the planning tasks necessary for IPv6 deployment.

The following table lists different tasks for configuring the IPv6 network. The table includes a description of what each task accomplishes and the section in the current documentation where the specific steps to perform the task are detailed.

For Instructions
1. Prepare your hardware to support IPv6.
Ensure that your hardware can be upgraded to IPv6.
2. Get an ISP that supports IPv6.
Ensure that your current ISP supports IPv6. Otherwise, find an ISP who can support IPv6. You can use two ISPs, one ISP for IPv6 and one for ISP IPv4 communications.
3. Ensure that your applications are IPv6 ready.
Verify that your applications can run in an IPv6 environment.
4. Get a site prefix.
Obtain a 48-bit site prefix for your site from your ISP or from the nearest RIR.
5. Create a subnet addressing plan.
You need to plan the overall IPv6 network topology and addressing scheme before you can configure IPv6 on the various nodes in your network.
6. Design a plan for tunnel usage.
Determine which routers should run tunnels to other subnets or external networks.
7. Create an addressing plan for entities on the network.
Your plan for addressing servers, routers, and hosts should be in place before IPv6 configuration.
8. Develop an IPv6 security policy.
Investigate IP Filter, IP security architecture (IPsec), Internet Key Exchange (IKE), and other Oracle Solaris security features as you develop an IPv6 security policy.
9. (Optional) Set up a DMZ.
For security purposes, you need an addressing plan for the DMZ and its entities before you configure IPv6.
10. Enable the nodes to support IPv6.
Configure IPv6 on all routers and hosts.
11. Turn on network services.
Make sure that existing servers can support IPv6.
12. Update name servers for IPv6 support.
Make sure that DNS, NIS, and LDAP servers are updated with the new IPv6 addresses.
