ESXi Host kickstart script IPv6 Mgmt Address

Hi VMW Community,

 

we need to test IPv6 on ESXi Hosts. One Test is with Dual Stack ESXi Hosts and one Test is with IPv6 only.

We are using the kickstart install script for ESXi installation.

 

For IPv4 we do the ESXi Management IP Configuration like this:

##snip##

# Set the network to Static on the first network adapter

network --hostname=esxihhost1 --device=vmnic0 --bootproto=static --ip=192.168.1.111 --netmask=255.255.255.0 --gateway=192.168.1.1 --nameserver=192.168.1.10

##snip##

 

Now to my question is it possible to configure IPv6 addresses for the ESXi host via the kickstart script and if so how?

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

KW
