We’ve just released a whitepaper discussing the behavior of different operating systems once they receive IPv6 configuration parameters from different sources. For that purpose a number of lab tests were conducted.
In short, it’s a mess. Again, RFC ambiguity and/or (perceived) vendor implementation freedom suck big time. For us practitioners out (t)here this means (once more) we need extensive test labs and good troubleshooting guides for large scale IPv6 deployments.
Everybody have a good week and don’t forget to enable IPv6 on something 😉
