  1. trying to set static ipv6 address

    I found this site: dns crawler] Adding in the ip address: 2001:4898:e8:100b:98de:554a:9c3c:fbbf and the subnet mask, or /22, I get the netmask to be ffff:fc00:0:0:0:0:0:0 The calculator gives me: CIDR Block 2001:4898:e8:100b:98de:554a:9c3c:fbbf/22 That is the address that I had initially set, so it appears that it is already in CIDR format like it requires. <UnicastIpAddresses> <IpAddress wcm:action="add" wcm:keyValue="1">2001:4898:e8:100b:98de:554a:9c3c:fbbf/22</IpAddress> </UnicastIpAddresses>
  2. I'm trying to set a static ipv6 address in the unattend.xml for deployment but whenever it deploys the address that the machine is assigned isn't the address that is specified in the unattend.xml file. I tried looking around on-line but couldn't find any examples of ipv6 and only ipv6. If anybody can shed some light on how to fix the file to assign a static ipv6 address that would be great. The unattend file specifies "2001:4898:e8:100b:98de:554a:9c3c:fbbf" as the ipv6 address, but the address that got assigned was "2001:4898:e8:100b:5dff:febc:8217" Here is the tcp/ip section of the unattend file: <component name="Microsoft-Windows-TCPIP" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <Interfaces> <Interface wcm:action="add"> <Ipv4Settings> <DhcpEnabled>false</DhcpEnabled> <Metric>20</Metric> <RouterDiscoveryEnabled>false</RouterDiscoveryEnabled> </Ipv4Settings> <Identifier>Local Area Connection</Identifier> <Ipv6Settings> <DhcpEnabled>false</DhcpEnabled> <Metric>30</Metric> <RouterDiscoveryEnabled>true</RouterDiscoveryEnabled> </Ipv6Settings> <UnicastIpAddresses> <IpAddress wcm:action="add" wcm:keyValue="1">2001:4898:e8:100b:98de:554a:9c3c:fbbf/22</IpAddress> </UnicastIpAddresses> <Routes> <Route wcm:action="add"> <Identifier>0</Identifier> <Prefix></Prefix> <Metric>10</Metric> <NextHopAddress><our default gateway address></NextHopAddress> </Route> </Routes> </Interface> </Interfaces> </component> Thanks,
