Trouble with ipv6 Stateless configuration for new vms

Mar 2, 2020
Ever since I upgraded to pve6 from pve6 my ipv6 address SLAAC seems broken. "Old" vms with exisiting ips work fine, but new ones will initially get an ip address for ipv6, and then next reboot won't. I can't figure out why its happening, different network adapters, different oses etc. simply don't reliably work with ipv6 slaac anymore. I did at one time try the iproute2 and thats when everything blew up. I went back to iproute, but now my network for new machines is totally unusable. Any ideas? My "external" interface is vmbr0.

# Please do NOT modify this file directly, unless you know what
# you're doing.
# If you want to manage parts of the network configuration manually,
# please utilize the 'source' or 'source-directory' directives to do
# so.
# PVE will preserve these directives, but will NOT read its network
# configuration from sourced files, so do not attempt to move any of
# the PVE managed interfaces into external files!
