|Oracle Solaris Administration: IP Services Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
The following typical IPv4 network services in the current Oracle Solaris release are IPv6 ready:
HTTP (Apache 2.x or Orion)
The IMAP mail service is for IPv4 only.
Nodes that are configured for IPv6 can run IPv4 services. When you turn on IPv6, not all services accept IPv6 connections. Services that have been ported to IPv6 will accept a connection. Services that have not been ported to IPv6 continue to work with the IPv4 half of the protocol stack.
Some issues can arise after you upgrade services to IPv6. For details, see Problems After Upgrading Services to IPv6.
Note - LDAP supports IPv6 without requiring IPv6-specific configuration tasks.
Refer to the appropriate firewall-related documentation for instructions.
For more information, refer to marketing collateral and associated documentation for the software.
Consider strengthening the policies that are in place for IPv4 to support IPv6. For more security considerations, see Security Considerations for the IPv6 Implementation.
In the MX records for DNS, consider adding the IPv6 address of your mail server.
For DNS-specific considerations, see How to Prepare DNS for IPv6 Support.
Use the same Diffserv policies on a host that were used for IPv4. For more information, see Classifier Module.
The current Oracle Solaris release supports DNS resolution on both the client side and the server side. Do the following to prepare DNS services for IPv6.
For more information that is related to DNS support for IPv6, refer to Oracle Solaris Administration: Naming and Directory Services.
Note - Servers that run multiple critical services require special attention. Ensure that the network is working properly. Also ensure that all critical services are ported to IPv6. Then, add the server's IPv6 address to the DNS database.
