My colleague Matthew gave a presentation about bare metal provisioning servers at Facebook on IPv6-only networks at SREcon last month. He discusses the entire process from why we went v6-only, selection of DHCP server and network boot loaders, through installing CentOS on hosts, and all of the gotchas along the way. By audience survey it doesn’t seem like many people are doing v6 provisioning yet, I suspect many people are still hamstrung by v4-only infrastructure like older PXE ROMs. He also covers the work I’ve done on Anaconda to improve IPv6 reliability which I’ve written about a few times here before.
