Prior to the update of Mozilla's Bugzilla to 4.2, had an IPv6 address. This seems to have been removed with the upgrade (and relocation). According to , I should file a bug to get this fixed.

ipv6 is ready in the VIPS vlan. Shyam was working on the load balancers.

Any update on this bug?

Shyam, do you remember where you left off? Happy to pick this up since I need to poke at a couple new test zlbs soon.

Nowhere. We don't have ipv6 in SCL3 due to past issues with enabling ipv6 in that datacenter. I'm not sure if we're in a position to do so now, needinfo'ing Arzhel for the same.

V6 connectivity in that vlan is back, the ZLB boxes still can't ping each other over v6, so maybe it has been disabled (or filtered) on the servers?

fyi, this is the range that should be used:
The zlb's can (now?) ping each other:

zlb2.ops.scl3# ip addr | grpe inet6 | grep global
    inet6 2620:101:8016:5::1:209/64 scope global 

zlb1.ops.scl3# ping6 2620:101:8016:5::1:209

64 bytes from 2620:101:8016:5::1:209: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=2.63 ms

However I am unable to ping6/traceroute6 to an ipv6 address on them.

zlb1.ops.scl3# ip addr | grpe inet6 | grep global
    inet6 2620:101:8016:5::2:1/64 scope global

I think the issue is that the v6 addresses are assigned to eth0 instead of eth0.5@eth0.
As they are in the wrong vlan they can still talk to each other but not reach the proper gateway.

How's this going? I can ping the addresses mentioned in comment 6, so it seems the IPs have been moved to the right interface now.

2620:101:8016:5::2:1 seems to be working fine, but it's for (which I note is missing an AAAA record too). 2620:101:8016:5::1:208 however seems to be dropping connections to port 80 and 443, even though I can ping it.
We're going to defer this to when we get all of BMO over to AWS, which won't be until at least Q1 (there is no agreed upon timeline yet, afaik)

In that case, let's hope AWS have deployed IPv6 by then.
