Has anyone run dual stack ceph? (IPv4 + IPv6)

I am sure this falls into the buck of 'because the docs say you can' when someone asks 'but why?'

Has anyone else been silly enough to try dual stack ceph?
Any horror stories, or all been fine?

This was really just a step on my way to doing ceph over IPv6 but i started on IPv4 and wanted to 'safely' migrate.

To be clear it is currently working and 100% green - though the UI got a bit wonky and there were a couple of systemctl restart cepg,target issued to get to this...

How would that work?
Dunno, but it patently does, guess you didn't look at the image. I also verified with the native ceph tools, ss -l etc. Guess i just got lucky ;-) as I implied this was just a fun hill to go climb for no other reason than 'it was there'.
