Hi Jandra,
Sorry for late reply. I had read  ,  I saw the calling of redfish  in api-ulti.js . I wonder if the ipv6 has been done in this BMC system.  Would you like to tell me the ipv6 support schedule of  bmc OS? 

Thanks for your reply.

Hi Ruixia,

I want to point you to the Gerrit commit for the Network Settings design supporting only IPV4. It would be great for you to review the code and familiarize yourself with the structure so that once this is merged, implementing the IPV6 design is fast and easy.

Hi Jandra,
	It'd be better to have FGDN, but we can do without right now. Hope that we'll have it in the future. 
	The other entries in your email are consistent with our understanding.
Thanks for your reply.

Hi Ruixia,  

Thanks for the clarification. I wanted to let you know we are still working on this and hoping to get it to you all as soon as we can. I want to make sure we are understanding the requirements for Lenovo:

- Need the ability to support both IPV4 and IPV6 simultaneously on a single interface.
- In the case the both IPV4 and IPV6 are enabled in a single interface, zero-configuration cannot assign addresses to either. 
- The format for IPV6 DNS servers is the same as IPV6 IP addresses. Do each of these also have a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN)? 
- Only two IP addresses maximum (in addition to those provided by zero-config, if any) will be supported per interface. If there are two, one must be IPV4 and one must be IPV6. 
- For IPV6, we will support either DHCP or static configurations, not both at the same time on the same interface. Same applies for IPV6, though IPV4 can be different from IPV6. 

Thank you for your patience with us.

when both IPV4 and IPV6 are enabled and DHCP is disabled and the user input nothing to IPV4 and IPV6 address input box (zeroconf),in this case,it shall not to assign any IP address to bmc network device, the webui should give an error tips to users.

It only works when the user input the correct format IP address.
PS:Having a check box to enable ipv4 and ipv6 configuration would be better.
One useful link:

Can you clarify this? I do not follow.

IPV6 DNS servers  is in the format of an IPV6 IP address. 
it will be similar with the picture below, maybe.

Best regard, thanks.

Ruixia -- I am waiting on a couple of responses from our backend team to be able to provide a design that aligns with how the functionality is developed. 

Ratan -- I'm helping create the design mockup for including IPV6 in the Network settings panel so that Lenovo can do the front-end implementation. Do you know if the work your team was doing for this will be merged to the master soon?

I have some questions I am hoping you can help answer for this IPV6 design:  
- What happens to zeroconf when both IPV4 and IPV6 are enabled? Does it try to assign an IP address to both (in the case that DHCP doesn't give either) or does it only assign either an IPV4 IP address or an IPV6 IP address? 
- What is the format of IPV6 DNS servers? Is that also in the format of an IPV6 IP address?

I have built the latest openbmc project image by adding the option "ipv6" in the term DISTRO_FEATURES_DEFAULT in the file /meta-phosphor/conf/distro/include/ I can ping the openbmc  IPV6 IP successfully, but cannot login to it by openssh command.
It seemed that there are some works on openbmc embedded OS to support IPV6.
Another issue from Ruixia is the IPV6 Dbus Interfaces design, I found there are some IPV6 rest-Dbus or Redfish interfaces on yaml files available. I don' t know is it enough to the IPV6 webui.

Ratan, would you be able to help Ruixia and Xiuzhi with this?

Hi Xiuzhi and Ruixia,  

It would be great to set some time to align on the requirements from design and how to work together so that your team can start on the so front-end development.  

Like Derick said, we meet every other Wednesday at 10:00 Central time to discuss GUI issues, with the next one being next Wednesday (July 3rd). Hopefully you can make that. 

If you cannot, I am happy to meet at 7:00 or 8:00 AM Central time this Wednesday (June 26th) or Friday (June 28th). Please let me know.

>>  Ruixia (her email: rxsun at;), form my team can do  front-end  to implement your design .  It would be best if the IPV6 feature could be achieved in one to two months.

>It would be great if she were able to join our GUI Community
workgroup. It's every other Wednesday at 10:00 Central Time. We use
these to discuss all the GUI issues. Where are you located?
  I am in BeiJing  UTC+8. The meeting time is  Wednesday  23:00 Beijing Time (Wednesday 10:00 am Central Daylight Time),isn't it?
