The following steps detail the process of adding an IPv6 Addresses. The process entails three parts: Creating an IPv6 Global Prefix, creating an IPv6 Site, and then assigning IPv6 Addresses to the site.

To add an IPv6 Global Prefix:

  1. Click IP Addresses in the Menu bar.
  2. Click Manage Subnets & IP Addresses.
  3. Select a directory folder from the left menu tree and then Click Add > IPv6 Global Prefix.

    An IPv6 address global prefix is a combination of an IPv6 prefix (address) and a prefix length. The prefix takes the form ipv6-prefix/prefix-length and represents a block of address space (or a network). The ipv6-prefix variable follows general IPv6 addressing rules (see RFC 2373 for details). The /prefix-length variable is a decimal value that indicates the number of contiguous, higher-order bits of the address that make up the network portion of the address. For example, 10FA:6604:8136:6502::/64 is a possible IPv6 prefix.

  4. Provide an appropriate Name and Description.
  5. Enter the Global Prefix address.
  6. Click Save.
