I can not figure out what I need to do.
Apparently according to linode support, the VM is trying to grab an IPv6
address with some privacy stuff enabled by default causing it to not grab the IPv6 address that is assigned to me.
Nothing I have tried seems to work, and it seems that Linode support are far more familiar with Ubuntu than CentOS.
I know CentOS follows Red Hat so I’m not suggesting this is CentOS‘s fault, but stuff like this really is why I am a much bigger fan of KISS
with simple key=value configuration files that don’t seem to exist anymore with Linux networking in the Red Hat world.
Making things more complex to benefit “Cloud” servers it the worst thing Red Hat ever did.
Sorry for the tone, I’m quite frustrated and as an epileptic who doesn’t drive, driving down to the SF Bay Area for RHCE classes that won’t even be applicable in a few years when they change stuff again isn’t really an option.
Been using Red Hat since MKLinux DR3 (based on Red Hat 5.1) and been through the training courses before and everything changes.
Anyone know what might be going on? And how to get dhclient to grab the
“right” IPv6 address, the same one this VM grabbed no problem for well over a year?
