enable ipv6 on solaris10 afterthefact

 effing oracle.  
   
 you have this:  
 # ifconfig inet6 interface plumb up  
   
 which in my case is:  
 # ifconfig inet6 igb0 plumb up  
   
 and it spits out:  
 ifconfig: igb0: bad address (try again later)  
   
 no. your doc writers are jerks. here's what it should look like:  
   
 root@host:~$ ifconfig igb0 inet6 plumb  
 root@host:~$ ifconfig igb0 inet6 token ::10/64  
   
 root@host:~$ svcadm enable svc:/network/routing/ndp:default  
   
 root@host:~$ pkill -HUP in.ndpd  
   
 root@host:~$ ifconfig -a6  
   
 igb0: flags=2000840<RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6> mtu 1500 index 2  
     inet6 fe80::210:e0ff:fe0c:ea9a/10  
     ether 0:10:e0:c:ea:9a  
   
 make it permanent.  
   
 root@host:~$ vi /etc/hostname6.igb0  
 hostname  
 addif fe80:0000:0000:210:e0ff:fe0c:ea9a/10 up  
   
 * note: : is a series of :0000:  
   
 oracle, eat a bug. eat a lot.
