|Summary||0001585: "Manual" IPv4 and "Automatic" IPv6: no IPv6 address assigned|
|Description||On Rocky Linux 9.1's NetworkManager, I normally use a "manual" static IPv4 address and an "automatic" IPv6 address. This is mainly since on residential ISPs, we don't get static IPv6 on most ISPs but IPv4 NAT is still static nevertheless.|
If I use "manual" IPv4 and "automatic" IPv6, I get no IPv6 address via SLAAC or DHCP.
However, if I use "automatic" IPv4 and IPv6, I get both assigned. Even if a manual IPv4 is also set alongside automatic, I still get an IPv6, albeit with both static and DHCP v4.
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Install Rocky 9.1 with minimal install.|
2. Set up bridge
3. Set IP addresses on bridge, with "manual" and static IPv4 and "automatic" IPv6
5. Only IPv4 on bridge interface with `ip addr`
|Additional Information||This is on a i7-12700 'server' and an Intel X550-T1 10 Gigabit NIC. My router runs OPNsense on a quad-port Chinese firewall box, and my ISP is CenturyLink using GPON/fiber and 6rd.|
This happens if I configure a bridge, which I use for virtual machines.
Workaround: add a DHCP reservation on my OPNsense box to my static address.
openSUSE Tumbleweed/Leap didn't have this issue with bridge and NM, even with the same OPNsense box. However, I'm switching to Rocky mainly due to the uncertainty around SUSE's ALP plan.
