When you plan for IPv6 addresses on a server, you must make a few decisions as you enable IPv6 on the server's interfaces. Your decisions affect the strategy to use for configuring the interface IDs (tokens) of an interface's IPv6 address.
The following procedure describes how to enable IPv6 on your network's servers. Some of the steps might vary depending on the manner in which you want to implement IPv6.
For step-by-step instructions, see Configuring IPv6 Interfaces.

By default, IPv6 address autoconfiguration uses the MAC address of an interface when creating the interface ID portion of the IPv6 address. If the IPv6 address of the interface is well known, swapping one interface for another interface can cause problems. The MAC address of the new interface will be different. During address autoconfiguration, a new interface ID is generated.
