Applies to:

Oracle Exalytics Software - Version 2.0.0.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

Internet Protocol Version (IPV) 6, or IPV6, is a communications protocol that provides an identification and location system for computers on networks and routes traffic across the Internet. This feature may, or may not, be enabled on your Exalytics server(s).  When company guidelines, or certain software applications require that IPV6 be disabled on the server, there are a series of steps that need to be taken to disable the feature.  This document describes the steps to check and disable IPV6 configuration on an Exalytics server.

Scope

This document applies to Exalytics, X series, Linux 6.6+ servers.  The steps described have been tested on a Linux 6.6, Release 2.0.0.0.0 bare metal server.  While not tested directly, the same series of steps may also be used on Exalytics Linux 6, OVM servers. The steps in this document should be performed by a network or systems administrator who is proficient in Linux.
