Ubuntu Container inv6 Privacy Extensions

Hey there all together,

I am using this form since a while to find informations about configuring my proxmox system and I really like the forum.

Now I struggle since a few days to get the privacy extensions for ipv6 running in my ubuntu container.

My container getting a global and a link local ipv6 already (both have the interface ID at the end). But I didn’t get it working to get the temporary global ipv6 assigned.

I already tried several different things like adding IPv6PrivacyExtensions=true to /etc/sysctl.conf or checked that net.ipv6.conf.all.use_tempaddr=2 is set in /etc/sysctl.d/10-ipv6-privacy.conf. All of these seems to be right (at least what I can find out with the internet so far) but my container doesn’t get the privacy extensions running.

To be clear, I am a User, not an expert with that stuff.

Can someone direct me what I need to do to get it working?
