[SOLVED] ipv6-only: pveproxy does not bind to ipv6 address

Nov 19, 2019
I recently made a fresh install from a PVE 6.0 ISO on an empty box. I decided to run that box as ipv6-only. Installation went through smoothly. All IP address infos I entered during the installation went correctly into /etc/network/interfaces.

Unfortunately the pveproxy does not bind to [::]:8006. How do I tell him otherwise?

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eno1 inet6 manual

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet6 static
    address fc::2
    netmask 64
    gateway fc::1
    bridge_ports eno1
    bridge_stp off
    bridge_fd 0

iface eno2 inet6 manual
iface eno3 inet6 manual
iface eno4 inet6 manual

Ah, of course. (Thought about it before writing my post but simply forgot it.)

Code: localhost.localdomain localhost
fc::2 pve.example.com pve

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts

::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

I even tried something like this:
::ffff: pve
Hmm - looks ok - what's the output of:
* `uname -n`
* `ping6 $(uname -n)`
* `hostname`
* `hostname -f`
* `cat /etc/pve/.members`
# uname -n

# ping6 $(uname -n)
PING pve(pve.example.com (fc::4)) 56 data bytes
64 bytes from pve.example.com (fc::4): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.045 ms

# hostname

# hostname -f

# cat /etc/pve/.members
"nodename": "pve",
"version": 0
IIRC the '*:8006' should cover both address families (though this depends on some sysctls)
sorry for not seeing this before.
