Thanks to:

Tajinder Panesar and
systems administration account@astro:

touch /etc/hostname6.<interface-name>, then reboot
No claims to any problems running dual IP versions.

Subject: Enabling IPv6 on Solaris 8 SPARC 07/01


I have Solaris 8 installed on my E420R's running only IPv4. During the
initial installation it was decided not to use IPv6.

However we are now considering implementing IPv6 for internal use in the
very near future. My questions are:

- How do I install IPv6 without loosing any data?
- Is it wise to run IPv4 as well as IPv6 on the same physical wire?

Thank you kindly.
