IPv6 network provided by host I’ll be using a sample CIDR fc04:1c8e:685a:239c: for this tutorial. One IPv6 was provisioned to server over DHCP. fc04:1c8e:685a:239c::1 I created two new IPv6 addresses at host. fc04:1c8e:685a:239c::2 fc04:1c8e:685a:239c::3 Add IPv6 address to server: $ sudo vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ens192 Add the following line to the end of the file: IPV6ADDR_SECONDARIES="fc04:1c8e:685a:239c::5/64   fc04:1c8e:685a:239c::4/64" Reboot host. You should now see the networks available: $ ip addr | grep inet6 ... inet6
