Description

The DHCPv6 service is enabled on the AWS EC2 instance. This normally wouldn't be an issue except when you attempt add a secondary ENI onto the instance, and attempt to configure it as a LAN DHCP interface, the system throws an error saying that it needs a static IPv6 address because the DHCPv6 service is running on that interface. When you attempt to turn off the DHCPv6 service via Services -> DHCPv6 Server & RA, it also throws an error because the server can only be configured on interfaces configured with static IPv6 addresses. The only way to get around this issue is to enable SSH, and disable it via config.xml or development shell:

pfSense shell: unset($config[dhcpdv6][lan][enable]);
pfSense shell: exec
pfSense shell: write_config();
pfSense shell: exec
pfSense shell: exit

  • Target version changed from 2.3.1-p2 to 2.3.2

I think there's overlap here with something I already fixed in a diff ticket but will verify.

  • Status changed from New to Resolved
  • Affected Version changed from 2.3.1 to 2.3.x

wasn't overlap because the interface assignment process isn't user-initiated in that case. Fixed to have that unset by default for EC2.
