Create IPv6 Network Settings on a Primary or Replica Instance

On the Amazon Web Services virtual appliance, the Hyper-V virtual appliance, and the VMware virtual appliance, you can create IPv6 network settings to support IPv6-compliant agents. The Azure virtual appliance only supports IPv4 network settings.

Authentication Manager supports the TCP agent protocol. By default, Authentication Manager port 5500 supports IPv4- and IPv6-compliant agents. For all other services and ports, IPv4 is supported. Configuring IPv6 in the Operations Console does not enable its use for communications between the primary instance and replica instances.


  1. In the Operations Console, click Administration > Network > Appliance Network Settings.

  2. Click Edit Network Settings.

  3. Under IPv6 Settings, check Enable for IPv6.

  4. In the IPv6 Address field, enter a valid IPv6 address, for example, 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7335.

  5. In the IPv6 Prefix field, enter a prefix length, for example, 64.

  6. Click Next.

    The Operations Console displays a review page.

  7. Select Yes, change the network settings, and click Change Network Settings.

    Authentication Manager restarts services.
