Check the manufacturers' documentation for IPv6 readiness regarding the following classes of hardware:
Note - All procedures in the this book assume that your equipment, particularly routers, can be upgraded to IPv6.
Some router models cannot be upgraded to IPv6. For more information and a workaround, refer to IPv4 Router Cannot Be Upgraded to IPv6.
For each NIC of IPv6 servers, manually configure the interface ID portion of the IPv6 address instead of automatically obtaining the ID with the Neighbor Discovery protocol. In this manner, if a NIC is replaced, the same interface ID can be applied to the replacement NIC. A different ID automatically generated by the Neighbor Discovery protocol might cause unexpected behavior by the server.
